This morning’s meter reading (89204 KWH) shows that we used 43 KWH of energy yesterday, which is not too shabby but not too great . If we keep up that rate, we’ll use 1333 KWH for the month of March, which is more than we used in March, 2009; but less than we used in March 2010.
Today, I’m making an effort to crank down the energy use by turning off the heat pump (it’s 30 degrees right now but promises to rise to about 60 by midday,) keeping all lights off until after dinner, and running one load of laundry in cold water and drying it on my indoor drying rack. Oh, and keeping my kids (and myself) out of the house for as long as possible!
Let’s see what that racks up in energy usage by tomorrow.
