For really bright high bay lights, HO T-5s w/ polished reflectors (6 bulb) can't be beat (about 200 ea). It's like turning on the sun. Only problem is the bulbs only last year or so, & then its up in the air you go.
I had the HO 6 bulb units installed when I was acting Facility Manager at another employer, you are right that they throw a ton of light, and replaced a bunch of the high pressure high bay lights.

Will check out Rural King, we have Tractor Supply here, but I use a lot of on-line sources to keep this chicken/goat/weed "small farm" running....between disasters...sorta.

RK just moved its corporate HQ to NC. Looks like they are coming your way.

I find that they are a great resource. As an example they have house brand synthetic motor oil in 5 quart jugs for under 10, and BCI Grp 24M & 24F batteries on sale for 39 (60 mo warranty). I picked up batteries for all my Jeeps during sub zero weather for 49/ea (missed the sale).

In 2005/06 I reworked the lighting in a rather large warehouse. Went from 400watt MH High Bay's to the T-5 HO instant strike/motion detector type lights. Paid for the job (ROI) in less than 6 months in power savings. Reduced the number of fixtures by 50%,doubled the effective light and dropped the power consumption through the floor.

You may be able to get some economic relief from:https://energy.gov/eere/femp/energy-...south-carolina
for installing energy saving lighting, and some other alternative systems.
