ran into an issue with them last night, seems even with the correct rheostat in if there is too many bulbs on a line they can start strobing, place looked like a disco in the middle of dinner.

did you feel like you HAD to dance? 

Did that bother you because you are not a good dancer?

What if you were a better dancer, would it have been ok?

March 3/15 4696 kw/h

March 3/16 4473 kw/h

Not much savings, not sure what caused that, maybe lower temps this year versus last, will have to look up historical data. But that makes a complete year, I will add everything up and give a yearly breakdown.

Interesting story (or at least I think so).

 

I recently started working for a new pest company.  They service Johns Hopkins Hospital.  They have a full time tech there during the week 7am-3pm and then another full time tech there from 3pm-11pm.  I had to do a week with each of them as part of my training.

Well on one of my night shift nights, they (maintenance)  were up working on a scissor lift, replacing lights with LEDs.  We chatted with them about it.  Know what their (Johns Hopkins) electric bill is?  1.3 million PER MONTH!  And that's on top of what they produce themselves.  They have their own plant.  Crazy
