The 365 Day Challenge--Day 50

I came home tonight to a bag from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power that included 2 Compact Fluorescent Lights and some literature on saving water. How cool! We are currently in a drought here in Southern California and so we really need to conserve water. We live in a desert and our water source is largely from the snow melt on the Sierra Nevada's which has had a very dry winter. There are now restrictions on when and how often you can water your lawn, etc.

We recently purchased an energy efficient washing machine and received a $250 rebate check from LADWP!

We currently have our electricty bill down to about $25/month. We are very concerned with conserving energy and I would encourage you to do the same! Unplug appliances when they're not in use, turn lights off when you're not in a room, don't run the water while you're brushing your teeth, take shorter showers...a lot of things that will take just a little thought but save a lot of energy and YOU a lot of money!
