I use LED lights, which produce a lot of light, and very little heat. Definitely worth the investment. I have never turned on the A/C or heat in Maryland, except for a few days in February, 2012 when I had a house guest.

    We’d be envious except we like the temperature range of -15 to +100 (F) and live in a fully electric house (wood for emergency; haven’t used in years). But maybe in a few years, if the POTUS has his way, all those in the northern tier of states will move to Maryland.

    And if we all would do the same they’ll find alternative ways to raise the price even more.

    Curious about the climate of Maryland, I did a Google search on: maryland climate. Number 1 hit was this:

    http://climatechange.maryland.gov/

    Their “science” page is a howler. This page fares better, with nice pictures of black eyed susans and a pony:

    You seem to have relatively cold (i.e. they’d be really cold for me) winters across the state. Do you have good insulation, lots of warm clothing, or a strong constitution? 🙂

    Excel on is known for being mainly nuc power company. I would think greens in Maryland would want a different utility.

  5. Don’t want to brag but I used 146 Kw hours last month

  6. I also am 100% electric. Heat, hot water, AC.

    It’s the least you could do for all your Sin and Abuse of Gaia and the Church of Climate Disruption. .

    We lived off the grid 100% ten years.

    The refrigerator came on in October and turned off in April. 🙂

    Paul Homewood’s blog has a nice piece on what UK has signed up to in Committee on Climate Change and their Climate Act.
    More interesingly there is a link to the Globe International’s pfd that tells what all signature nations have signed up for – including the US.
    His link is to http://www.globeinternational.org/pdfviewer the pdf is downloadable from there.

    DEPENDS ON WHERE IN MD. YOU ARE. . we live in Mountain Martyland.
    winters can be brutal. Come up to garret county and ski sometime. LAST WINTER HAD SIX FOOT SNOW PACK. 12 FEET IN NEARBY WVA.

    Love my LED bulbs, especially the ones that change color, but I gotta cook with gas.

    I try to save electricity with reason and it seems i am around 70kWh a week, but it is not for heating. For that purpose i have a Ngas boiler and uses ~700m3 a year.
    It is for Denmark a bit below normal in electricity and well below for Ngas.
    P.S. We are two in the house.
    In Denmark the average heating is around 17MWh a year and 4 to 5000kWh electricity.
    Ngas is ~9DKr/m3 (~10kWh) and 2.3DKr/kWh electricity.
    And the gas station price is low now at 11DKr/liter.
    Just to tell you the energy price level in a european country.

    • tom0mason says:

      I make that about –
      Ngas is ~9DKr($1.54)/m3 (~10kWh or 34.121BTU/hr), or $43.60 per 1000 cubic ft.
      Electricity 2.3DKr ($0.39)/kWh.
      Gas station price is low now at 11DKr ($1.89)/liter or about $7.15/US gallon.

      Expensive in Europe ain’t you.

      • Svend Ferdinandsen says:

        Yes it is expensive relative to US, but somehow you get used to it. Most is taxes that should make you save energy, but i dont think we have saved as much as to compensate for the tax. The worst is that the government is dependent on the revenue, so when you save too much, the taxes goes up.
        A funny detail is that diesel is cheaper than gasoline. (~1 DKr les).
