## Can I use a 1000W bulb with a 600w ballast?

Using it to dim down a bulb, for example to run a 1000w watt bulb at 600w, is not ideal. The better use is to dim the ballast down to 600w and then use it to run an actual 600w bulb. That is the big advantage of a dimmable ballast: it allows you to power bulbs of multiple wattages.

Is kW and kWh the same?

When you see kWh on your monthly energy bill, it’s a measurement of your electric appliances’ wattage and the amount of time you use them.
