Oh, I thought that was what we were after. I think if you find your electric supplier's site, they'll show your breakdown.

Using a Micro-CHP for the home would also be a good "green" electricity source, although the initial cost is high and the fuel compatibility and availability is limited at this point:

Just discovered 2 interesting tidbits:

1) the owner of the small Ontario wind farm that provides the 20% wind portion of the power mix for Bullfrog Power drives a Honda Insight;

2) and he keeps quite an interesting blog that documents the performance of his 3-turbine installation & issues related to wind & energy issues: http://www.biofuels.coop/windblog/

Good to know that he's not a hypocrite. Have you got your first bill yet?

I'm almost entirely natural gas with a bit of nuke power, though if we lose our fight against FPL's coal plant that's going up two counties over, I'll have a pretty large amount of coal power. There are no green solutions in my area other than the option to pay $10 more per month to free up 1 kw of green energy using wind, solar and biomass, though this never makes it to my grid because the few green energy plants that they have are far from me, but at least it's energy that would otherwise be dirty.

I'm looking into the possibilities of getting some solar and wind power directly into my house, but the cost is pretty high, so this will be minimal.

FP&L really, really sucks.

No bill yet, z. That'll take a couple of months to get sorted out.

I think I've read almost all of the blog. Very interesting. He sails too - no surprise!

For $30 a month investment I could add another kilowatt of PV panels to my system and sell power to the grid. $30 a month is almost twice my average monthly bill now.
