I thought I would lighten up the board with something I found fun.
EPA has a neat little program that has a "yardstick score".

needed info therms per year usage and cost if applicable
KwH usage and cost
zip code number of occupants
I had to use 2007 instead of 2008 to calculate why I don't know

I live in the most mild climate of the country so I am sure I enjoy an advantage. We heat in the evenings for a short part of the winter. I have a window air conditioner that only cools one spot in the house, My chair by the TV. I use it probably less than 24 hours per year.
