    So far this cycle we have used 120 kwh, if this pattern of useage continues for the remainder of the cycle we will have used 1240 kwh, a far cry from last month which was 2710 (serious cold snap)

    DH has now been shown just how much electricity his space heater in the garage uses and he has not been running it much at all. Would get him a new one however the stores have not restocked the shelves yet (all heaters and electric blankets sold out durring the 10 day cold snap we had) ...

    Well, our heat has not been working since 1/7...who knows how long it ran on emergency heat strips before we noticed it! Been running space heaters to keep the main living area warm all weekend....this can't be good on the electric usage.

    Fortunately they are coming out to fix the heater today....Hopefully that will help reduce the usage....

    Measures used to save today:
    Items on Power Strips-
    Microwave - Strip turned off
    TV - Strip turned off ...
