Re: Lowest electric bill ever. -- longest post ever.

Nice work.

HELP? How do you paste/create a table inside of a post.
Tables use a table tag. Begin cell values immediately after the table tag and end immediately after the last cell value. There are no row tags.
Separate each cell with a pipe
Just new-line to get the next row.
You can apply tags to cell values. Enclose in right tag to align right, for example.

Value 1,1value 1,2value 1,3
2,1
value 2,2value 2,3

For larger tables with fancy formatting I build the table in a spreadsheet. There are web pages that can help you do it though.

Re: Lowest electric bill ever.

[ table ] heading | heading | heading
row | row | row
row | row | row
[ / table ]


Remove the spaces around the table tags.

Sorry, I mean that I use formulae that build a formatted strings of values and then paste it into here. The separation of data and formatting makes it easier to make changes: update, copy, paste.

All about the glide
Really nice upgrade, Solid State Drive included. Well thought out. Good Luck.


Try this website. http://grano.la/
Nice little program that powers down the computer chip when not needed. It might be redundant for your system already, But it's saved me quite a few kwh so far.
Oh yea....It's FREE !



Also the timer installed APC looks great. Wish they were around when I started with my timers.

1 watt left on all year = 8.74Kwh

Re: Lowest electric bill ever.

vangonebuy--

Thank's for the Granola tip...I'll do my due diligence this week. The solid state drive and lots of ram make for fast enough (8 second) wake up times from hibernation to full usability that aggressive power saving settings can be employed. Also, the NAS handles all of the backup routines during the workday so I can power down my workstation as I head out the door.

The multi-function printer's 40 "watt power saving" mode is a farce. Starting this week, it's normal state is off. The APC timer is just there to power it down in case we forget to flip the printer's switch to zero.

I can't wait for the batteries in the battery backups to fry (they are all getting long in the tooth) so I can get all our IT gear on timers.

Re: Lowest electric bill ever.

PGE read their meter on Monday morning. That starts another year of monthly debits or credits to our electric bill. 2011-12 was 10th year with credits left on the table and total of about $60 in metering charge.

Time to put away the electric space heaters and get back into the conservation mode. We use to "true up" in the summer and this is much nicer from a planning perspective.

Net metering solar works well for us.

Dude, thanks for the Granola link. Between work in home have it on 5 computers now: it claims it's saving 44.8% of CPU energy or 233.1 kWh/yr on the old VAIO laptop I'm using right now and about 30% on my new work desktop in the post on the previous page. Haven't notice any performance degradation either--phenomenal. Gave the link to a potential customer in Iceland today and my bro in Ecuador...guess I'm evangelizing.
