Light Bulbs, The Northwest Passage and PlayStation

Front page of the Wall Street Journal, sailors are now navigating through the risky Northwest Passage. Evidentally, it has thawed so it is now not so treacherous. On the flipside, Congress is finally taking measures to ban incandescent bulbs by 2014. Australia is banning these relics(invented in 1807) by 2010. Nevertheless, it is a step in the right direction.

Todays Energy Tip of the Day is simple. Shut it off. Before you roll your eyes or go to a more intelligent blog, understand that todays games and toys use a ton of energy. Case in point, the Sony Playstation uses 150 watts of power versus 30 watts just last year. We have computers, fax machines and high powered light bulbs. Leaving them on will cost you.

Lastly, I was in our warehouse yesterday looking around. We have just installed a more efficient fluorescent bulb that is activated by motion. I have to look at our bills, because they must have been reduced dramatically. Motion sensors are a great idea for any lighting residential and commercial.
