Reduced electricity use

I must be doing something right, as my NYSEG bill claims that my daily power consumption has declined from 21 kWh in February-March of last year to 8 kWh this past month. I traded in my basement dehumidifier for one that seems to know not to run when it's too cold, gave away a freezer, replaced most of the lightbulbs in the house with compact fluorescents, and moved from a computer that drew150-200 watts to one that usually draws 30.

Maybe all those changes really did make a difference. Still, that seems like an implausible drop. Hmmm....

Last year we had that cold snap where it didn't get above 10 F for something like 20 days straight. This year its been the reverse. Let your wallet enjoy the change ; )
