Saving energy

There's a helpful article, Current Affair: My Life as a Watt Farmer, about saving energy--and living off the grid--in the October issue of Log Homes Illustrated.  The sidebar that gives you the power consumption of appliances is enlightening--and hair raising.  (Hmm.  Maybe I can use that static electricity.)  I knew that computers and clothes dryers--though he uses a propane dryer--use a lot of power, but it's interesting that a laser jet printer uses more power than an inkjet printer.  I see ice makers use more energy too.  The article's author is Rex Ewing, who wrote Got Sun?  Go Solar and Power with Nature.
