Fun with Watts: Getting down to the Facts!

Whatever We Think, The Odds Seem To Be . . .Nine to One Against (Until We do our Homework)

Check out my revised blog over on Remodeling Magazine.  It's an interesting story about learning from sloppy thinking . . .   my own!  Still, it turns out to be an interesting lesson.

 

That plus I could use the hits:  the editors over there think I'm every bit as popular as Muammar Gaddafi would be if he didn't have any money.  And that ain't popular!

 

Thus begineth the blog:

 

I drink a lot of coffee around here, but minimizing electrical use is something we take seriously. Marie and I put our money on the table, and now there's 4.7 KW of solar panels on the garage roof. But it's not there to enable us to use more juice. On a sunny day in Syracuse we feed electricity back into the grid. And yes, we do get sunny days. When that happens, the meter runs cheerfully backwards, we save some money, and the coal burning and nuclear power plants need to work just a teeny bit less. As you know, I'm convinced that every little bit helps.
