Energy

It's payday. Time to sit down and get the utilities bills taken care off.

The telephone/internet and satellite bills are the same every month. Nothing exciting there.

The exciting part for me was the gas and electric bills. These two are combined in one bill every month. A few entries ago, I wrote about having DTE Energy coming over to analyze our energy usage. I guess he wasn't kidding when he said he couldn't suggest an improvement for us to save energy.

I was looking at the bills and here's what we have for the last three months:
November $95
December $120
January $130

I am not bragging. Just stating the fact that this house has a big open layout on the ground floor. We thought it would take a lot to heat it up. I guess we are pleasantly surprised!

Carbon footprint

I did one last year. I don't remember what we our score was but it was about half of the nation's average.

I just did another one from 1/1/09 to 1/1/10. I put in 5 people in the household, including our housemate. We scored at 9.30 tonnes of CO2. It's slightly less than half of the national average but I am sure we could better than this.

Just have to try harder at reducing our waste.
