How smart / green are we all 3-Dec-2008 At 12:06:31 PM kezza
I was on the research band wagon late last night (uni withdrawals perhaps). And was trying to find out what the increased energy consumption from residential addresses was over the festive season. All I came across was an increase of more than 1000kw a day equalling over $100 per month in excess of regular use. (I can see where this can be flawed, with air con being used and fans etc cause of the summer and not being able to destinguish between festive use and summer use) But it went on to say that christmas lights were the major contributor.

So basically say NO to christmas lights. Your house doesn't need to look like tulla airport!

(I went as far as making pamphlets on reducing festive energy consumption, if your neighbour needs a reminder let me know, i'll email you the pamphlet and you can deliver if you see fit) -definate withdrawals-
