Lighting and heating

I need some suggestions for lighting in a new garage. It will be a 40' x 50'. I want to do the lighting in 3 sections. I have 4' and 8' flouresents in my garage now and want to see what everyone else is using for my new garage. I need to give some consideration to electric cost every month. Don't want to end up with a garage that I can't afford to turn the lights on in.

I really want a heated floor to. How long does it take to heat up a floor in say 20 degree weather the size of the one I am building? Does anyone have any idea or experience? I am also worried about weight on the floor. We have a military halftrack and RV that will go into the garage at times. Has anyone had bad experiences. Plus it needs ac for the summer. Anyone have thoughts on this?

The garage will have no windows, or skylights, and a 14' ceiling.
