Customer asked if self-ballasted lamps would make a Homeline GFI breaker open

Electronic ballasts may generate harmonics which make a GFI QO or HOM breaker prone to nuisance tripping. Inrush currents and capacitive discharge to ground can also contribute. Best to limit the number of ballasts on a circuit to five or fewer.
