Power Consumption

I'm a graphing junkie, I have to admit it. So I was pretty pleased to discover that my power company (BC Hydro ) provides some interesting consumption graphs for month to month kilowatts per hour usage. I'm pretty sure my meter is only read every two months so some of the resolution is lost in this, but still it's helpful.

One of the more striking trends I've seen in the data has been the birth of my daughter. Late nights, tons more laundry, cooking and heating bottles and leaving fans on so she can sleep. Power consciousness kinda goes out the window while we're dealing with an unhappy Maggie.

Summer should see the trend reverse and then I think we'll have to get creative in terms of keeping it down.
