    I am surprised that 1 degree only equates to 1% savings on your bill. So if I lower my heat from 72 to 68 I am only going to save 4%, that's almost not worth it.

    If Freedom is like being warm. What is having no money for winter. Chaos, confine the hostages and punish the unruly.

    Consider if building, a smaller house aka tiny house. When we lived in the states, our tiny house was super insulated and used a small (sardine) wood stove.

    Be really careful with that convert to another source thing. Many in our all-electric (original build) neighborhood did shift to alternatives (gas, oil, wood). Guess who has a lower utility cost today? My converted neighbors are paying more than double than my costs.

    Shifting markets, fads, and regulatory changes make the energy market crazy!
