Depends. last year our family ended up looking like we didn't pay our power bill while every one else continued on (Calgary)

No change. The an hour of bragging saving energy is nothing compared to even a little change throughout the rest of the year. But, if you can help raise awareness, please do.

It was certainly a good excuse to envelop everything in darkness and listen to brutal drone music.

I didn't. Sorry. I probably would have though, if that means anything.

 

By the way Gilded, that is still my favorite avatar. I wish I had the full sized pic.

seeing as my room(not the whole house unfortunately) doesn't consume energy i didn't feel the need as every hour is earth hour in here.

 

and no, its not heatd through the walls, my room is typically 5-10*C warmer than the rest of the house due to the electronics and how many people are usually in here.

a solar panel i found down the scrappies(scrapyard) and some car batteries.

 

as long as i don't have a 24hour session on the xbox it makes enough to power my room continuously.

 

heating isn't an issue due to too good insulation and a southfacing window, infact i usually have my window open to cool the place down.

Nice. Must be a fairly big panel, I would think? I guess it depends on what you're running off it.

it is actually. someone junked it because it 'didn't work' 2 minutes of soldering later and i got cheap solar.

 

if you average it out i use 105W of leccy, the solar panel give a max of 400W so it more than covers it.

I've never encountered a spammer before who wasn't trying to deviously link us to something costly. Imagine, greenspam!

Most appliances don't run on DC power, nor at the voltages likely supplied by the solar panel. How did you address this issue?

No problems with harmonics or noise either? What power rating(s) did you selected for your inverter(s)?
