From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

I bought $3.90 cents worth of electricity this month from the local utility, SRP. With the $15 service charge and taxes, my total bill will be about $20. Last year I paid $113 in April.

I was actually building up a credit, but then two things happened:
1) We had a few cloudy and partly cloudy days last week when I didn’t make as much electricity;
2) I bought the Chevy Volt electric car half-way through the billing period that can use up to 10 KWh a day to fully charge.

All that considered, the $3.90 is not bad at all.

The weather is starting to turn hot — we should hit 100 this weekend — so my bills are going to go way up. But I still expect to save $100 or more each month.
