Ok extreme bass-heads and amp-heads out there, show your charts of how addicted you are.

This is me, I listen to a LOT of loud music, daily.

Faimly of 4, gas heat, house not huge, electric cooking and AC in the summer, 1 computer, don't leave lights running etc, I don't use my hot tub at all, I don't do any arc welding or the like, very little woodworking with power tools.
(and if you do, mention it so as not to skew results vastly!)

I'd be super curious to see what some of you are pulling off the pole...

I have no reference point to compare, so I don't know if this is large or small, OR good or bad. I have a gut feeling I ain't being very "green" though...

Back when I was single with one roommate, we'd set the heater at 55° in the winter. I paid more in "privilage" fees for the gas than I did gas. I think one month i used around $3 in gas with a total bill around $15. My electric bill was equally low. Now, I have no idea, but I think it's around 200kwhrs/month.

In the future I may get a solar panel system to power my pre-amp and EQ's and computer monitor and desk lamp in an attempt to get more power into my sound system somehow, not to be more green LOL

I switched half the bulbs in my house a few weeks ago to the LED and CFL's in an attempt to save money on power. Doesn't seem to have had much effect, still burning up too much power; all it does is allows more power to flow into the amps, lights don't dim anymore when the bass hits hehe
