Re: B&Q/"Airforce" PM30 Electricity Tracker
by Mike Welsh at 2007-05-19 08:24:00 (Blog::Simon)
Stuart Below is a html copy of my latest corrected findings. They are easier to read in the original spreadsheet. (Note to self: need to redraft spreadsheet). FYI my microwave is a Panasonic NNV659. Further actions taken are: Freeview box, ADSL modem & router, Shredder: switched off when not in use. Further plans: - Cut down on use of dishwasher - but HOW? Will handwashing everything (what a chore) meet these aims: 1. Reduce my combined costs of electricity, gas (I have gas fired central and water heating) and water charges (I'm on a water meter). 2. reduce my carbon footprint - 24 hour monitoring of: freezer, fridge - Take action to resove tbds. -- welshmike Elecricity useage
