Less Power! Ugh, Ugh

To paraphrase Tim 'The Toolman' Taylor. The week before last I subscribed to our power company's(Consumers Energy) green power option called Green Generation. It is wind and methane power and even though our power use is pretty low, 22% of national average according to the Riot 4 Austerity numbers http://groups.yahoo.com/group/90PercentReduction/
I am happy to be able to leave coal and nuclear power behind. I also FINALLY got my clothesline up in the basement. You would think a 15 minute project would not take two months to get to would you? So with warmer weather coming(someday, please!) our electric usage will drop.
