Are you living with a ‘gas guzzler’?

Hi Everyone! My name is Anne Nardi and I am newly hired to help run EnAct. I graduated from William and Mary last May and just moved to

Madison this January. Madison is a great city, I know you all agree, and there are a lot of environmental resources available. I ran into this website from General Electric the other day and thought it would be great for all of our readers to check out. It is a break down of the appliances in your house and the amount of energy that each appliance consumes. Would you believe your hair dryer is the sixth largest energy consumer in the average house? (In terms of Kilowatts)  Who would have thought?  You can see which of your appliances are costing you the most money, gas or using up the most kilowatts of energy.  This is a great resource if you are looking to cut down on your energy consumption.  I suggest looking at the appliances in terms of gallons of gas.  It is shocking how much your appliances cost in gallons of gas per year, day or month.  Try comparing your high energy appliances, like your furnace, water heater, or air conditioner, to your car to find out where your money is really going.  You might be surprised.  (Of course this is only for those readers that own a car)

Also, I am now on Twitter so be sure to check out EnActgirl on the web for tweets about all sorts of good stuff including environmental tips or suggestions, EnAct news, as well as other fun stuff.

Be Green and Nice to meet you all!

Anne Nardi
