How long as So. Cal Edison been at it? 120 years plus?

Well today is Friday and it is the end of the day and I went to open my mail.  It is in the news and in our families that many are running on hard times so it was refreshing to get a Slick Green Brochure from my Electric company telling me the TOP ways to conserve Electricity.

I am certain that there was a committee of Top Energists that discussed what should be some of the contenders and this must have cost $25-50k to produce and send out.

The one that stuck out was the listing of Plasma TV’s? It is my understanding that there is a low  percentage of households who owns a plasma TV’s as most are LED.  So we found it costs $13.24/mo. for a Plazma .. . What is the physical size? 20″

Ok, so what is missing as a prominent mention by name and cost per month?

Give up? I think these items should have been targeted.

  • Gaming boxes like XBox left on 24/7, 1-2 per houshold. Cost per month?
  • Computers, 2-4 in one household. Cost per month?
    P.S. Your computer can be hibernating or sleeping but the powersupply is still full on.
  • Laptops,  2 per household, Cost per month?
  • Set top Box or your cable, DVR or Satellite box (did you know it was a computer?)

Aren’t our Teens some of the biggest offenders of these abuses?

I think these items are being mindlessly left on 24/7 and are becoming a real drain and the Electric company entirely missed the target!

So Cal Edison, what do you have to say?

  1. Well, yes, that is a real issue with a family.

    But, if you can’t get them to do it and they are really just slackers until they have their own kids and repeat the cycle, do this….

    Just put in fluorescent lights enter room sensors that you cannot override…


  2. Eric,

    I wish one of these large corporations would find a way to get teenagers to turn off lights when they leave a room. I have given up trying to remind my teens. It’s a losing cause!
