I think we all can agree, we need to use less energy. I am for drilling here, and for alternative fuels, But I think the quickest way for us to make a difference is to simply use less energy. So far I have. Replaced every light bulb in my house with energy efficient bulbs. Installed a tank less hot water heater. Talked the wife into using cloths lines to dry cloths when ever possible. Parked my 95 dodge truck and taken to only driving my Saturn. Only installed 1 of 3 window Air conditioners. (only one I installed was in the babies room. She sleeps much better with it, and it is only on when it is very hot, and she is trying to sleep) Allowed my lawn to turn brown and die from lack of watering. Cut my driving by nearly 50% compared to previous years (Normally I put about 15000 a year on the Saturn alone, so far this year only 3800 miles on it) Been much more vigilant about making sure lights are not on needlessly, Shut the computer off when ever I am not at it. I am also looking into installing Solar panels on my roof, not sure how much this will help in Northern Michigan but I am looking into it. I know it is not much, but it is something. So what have you done so far to use less?
