Stats Update

Average daily consumption for the past 29 days: 7.56kWh of electricity, 160L of town water.
Rainwater in storage: approx 6.4kL.

Per-day stats are one way to think about consumption of resources, but it's a bit of a mental leap to associate those numbers with our actual behaviour. I've started another column on my spreadsheet which puts the electricity use into a different perspective, converting it to an average continuous load.

Our 7.56kWh/day figure is equivalent to using 315W continuously - like having five of the old 60W incandescent light bulbs (or the common halogen downlights) burning day and night.
