California has got some funny rules. The code Nazi's out there have decided that a kitchen or bathroom with more than one fixture must have at least half lighted with fluorescent.

I am not familiar with the residential lighting aspect of Title 24 (energy conservation code). On the commercial side a lighting designer is given only so many watts/sq ft per building occupancy type or given so many watts per task in each area (plus many other mandatory measures/credits for energy efficiancy) to comply with title 24. The more energy efficiant the lighting (ie fluoescent) / the easier it is to comply with the code. Best regards, Kirk
