Hey I have been researching home made light setups online I have found some good options.(cheaper)

1) Ballasts I found an commercial brand of electronic ballast called fulham. They are instant start and high quality. Also I haved sourced them out in Coquitlam.

The workhorse 7 will power @ 55.00CAD each
2x 96 compact FL lights.

4x T8 High Output F40 tubes

4x 36 compact fl lights.

the work horse 5 will power @39.00 CAD each
4x T8 32 watt tubes (4ft) these tubes at 4100k are 6.00 each

There are lots more combinations possible. The higher the workhorse model number the more money.
I know that a 2 x96 watt compact retrofit kit costs.180.00us. So 55 canadian plus say 80.00 plus s
