i know people who grow under energy saving lights and it's ok.

I've dabbled in home cultivation myself in the past, and whilst it's true that you don't need anything in the region of 5000 watts to supply yourself, the combination of a mercury lamp and a timer do use an awful lot of electricity. My bill jumped by almost doublefold after three months of doing that, so I decided to pack it in - partly for ecological reaosn, and partly because I didn't want our electricity supplier to get suspicious (as I do know of people who've been caught that way).

Mind you, that was more than 10 years ago, and I dare say home growing equipment has come on by some distance in the interim.
