No change!

I was actually excited to find the electric bill in today's mail however upon opening it my happy face turned down. The billing cycle ran from 5/22 through 6/21 and my usage averaged 4 kwh per day, which was the same as my usage during the previous billing period.

Please keep in mind that I unplugged the television on June 1st. Before that it was plugged into a power cord which was turned off when the TV was not in use. (I wrote about my power consumption in a previous post.)

Conclusion: Even though this was not a money-saving measure, I've actually been happier by reading and listening to the radio rather than sitting in front of the tube. I keep up with the news online. I don't feel deprived so it's staying unplugged for now.
