Earth Hour - Saturday, March 28, 2009

In honor of Earth Hour tonight, I turned off non-essential electricity throughout the house for an hour. I measured my normal electricity use before and during also to see what impact turning everything off would have, and here are the results:

normal electricity usage from 7:30p - 8:30p = 2 kwh
electricity usage from 8:30p - 9:30p (Earth Hour) = 0.5kwh

I left the fridge on, but other than that I pretty much sat in darkness, except for a few candles... i should probably also note that i have energy efficient lights throughout the house anyway - so i've already made some changes to conserve in daily life =)
