Default You might be an EcoRenovator if

You strategically change out Incandescent bulbs for CFL's in your friends house without telling them.

Nicely done! You'll have to let us know if they ever figure out that you've changed them.

you buy CFL for your parents in law : http://ecorenovator.org/forum/lighti...d.html#post861

you swap older 2700K CFL with newer 6500K CFL

you ignore the two dozen of incandescent in your inventory of bulbs' stock because you have more than half a dozen spare CFL.

Oooh, I didn't think we were starting a series...

...you unplug every appliance that registers a standby power draw on your kill-a-watt.

Andre, mind if I use these pictures/story for a blog entry?

You are very welcome to Use those Pics/ story in a Blog; Sorry I didn't answer sooner.


More You might be an Eco-Renovator if Jokes From Vegas.

You can't stand the fact that your Vegas Crib has Solar Heated pool, but not Solar heated Domestic Hot water.

You calculate the savings if you unscrewed just one of the flashing bulbs on the strip.

You have to keep telling yourself that Vegas runs mostly off of the Dam so you don't cry when you think about all of those lights.

You consider going to a strip club; not because you want to see the girls; but you figure that they are dark and must not waste to much energy.

You sit in the screening room rather than the Living room because it has an LCD rather than DLP.

You hope that Southwest Hypermiles back to New Orleans.

More coming soon

You might be an ecorenovator if...

You take your kill a watt to work and start playing with your computer to see what kind of power you can save during the work day.

More to come on this in another thread.
