Going Green

Money sense.  I just did an inventory.  In and around my house I have 74 light sockets.  39 of 41 have LED bulbs (two sockets empty because one 100W equivalent bulb replaced 60W incandescents in two fixtures); 26 incadescents; 7 traditional fluorescent fixtures.

My Idaho Power bill just arrived.  Compared to the same month last year, my average KWh use per day went from 44.5 to 25.8.  It hasn't been warmer this year.  Colder, actually.  Maybe this is working.

I did the same. The down side is the loss of heat during cold weather. Incandescents are very effective at producing heat.
