Let's look at some other aspects:

The $5 Flourescent uses ~40 watts per bulb assumung 2 bulbs 80 watts.
For Arguments sake @ $0.10/KWH for electricity $0.008/hr

The Dual 500 watt halogen lamps. Both turned on 1 KW @ $0.10/KWH =
$0.10/hr 12.5 times more electricity. But that is not really that

Let's see you live in Georgia. I have been to Norcross in July. I found
it to be HOT! I like it cool, so I would pick the flourecent since it
has more than 10 times less heat pouring out.

FYI I have the Dual 500 Watt Halogen because I like it cool, not
freezing my a$$ off when it is 10 deg in the barn.
