Trying to Save Energy and Be Safe
Tony from Hawaiian Electric came out today to install the Energy Scout switch that would turn off our water heater for an hour or so if necessary during emergency energy shortages. As a bonus for being part of the program we get $3.00 off a month on our electric bill. Not much but we decided to try and help the state anyway.
Another thing we've bought are these LED lights which are supposed to last 25 years and provide a continuous glow for pennies a year. There are no bulbs and are cool to the touch. We've put them around the house so KC can see where she's at even without the lights turned on.
OK... Let's be honest here, it's for me so I can find my way to the bathroom at night without turning on any bright lights.
