No reason at all. That is considered above cabinet height. Mine are all 48” to bottom, same height as switches. Unless prohibited by local code. I only have a 16×22 shop, but I have 10 receptacles for 240v and double 120v receptacles every 32”. I also put in switches for under cabinet strip lights since my tools are along the wall and ceiling lights are behind and above me. Good lighting is important as we age. The DC duct is a little below the receptacles running along the wall. This puts the blast gates at an easy to reach height. Back to receptacles, all 120v in a garage or workshop must be GFCI protected. Even if you don’t have an inspection, use the GFCI receptacles for your own safety. I also put a couple timer controlled receptacles for battery chargers.
