I started this blog in October 2005, and we started picking the low-hanging fruit of our consumption by November. Over the course of the year we have made a lot of little changes (and some big ones). Our first attack was changing a few obvious light bulbs to compact fluorescent, and a few others, as I reported in November’s Electric Bill (2005). We started seeing them add up, and as they add up, the change continue to be remarkable.
Our electricity consumption for November 2005 was about 20% less than the same period in 2004. According to our current bill, we used 801 Kwh of electricity in 11/2005, and 588 in 11/2006. Yeah, that’s right, we have saved an additional 27% year over year. It’s simply amazing to me what can happen when little changes add up.
Rock on (and turn the lights off!)
