Green Energy

After reading Tom's post about green energy and watching An Inconvenient Truth I also decided to call up my power generation company and see what was on offer; ConEdison actually offers a variety of options ranging from buying green power straight from them, to connecting you to other suppliers. I decided to go with the ConEdison offering, and now pay 1 cent more per unit, which i think will be about $2 more per month. In exchange my power will come from hydro and wind sources.

I have yet to venture into the light bulb part of Tom's project, but think that LEDs could be of interest the next time one of my bulbs blows, if the prices come down a bit.
