Electricity Update #4: Free Home Energy Assesment With Kevin From Next Step Living

So I’ve been totally obsessed with helping my mom save money and being more comfortable at home so this is the latest and I 100% recommend that you take advantage of this free program like my mom did.

If you don’t like saving money without any cost to you whatsoever then stop reading right now.

If you want to take advantage of awesome programs available to you right now for zero out of pocket then watch the video and sign up for your own energy efficiency assessment and get a ton of free lightbulbs, power strips, electronic thermostats that will turn down the heat at night or while you’re at work automatically, and efficient showerheads.

SIGN UP HERE-

My mom got-

Over thirty free lightbulbs that use 10 watts vs 65 watts, free energy efficient shower heads, power strips and a whole report detailing more steps she can take to save even more.  If you are planning to insulate your house and put in more efficient heating systems theres even more free stuff  and zero percent financing for more intense things.

All you have to do is sign up, in our case local guy Kevin Geisel comes out and goes over everything with you and replaces all the bulbs.  In my mom’s case she had over 30 flood light “cans” that were 65 watt bulbs that were replaced with bulbs that gave off the same amount of light but only draw 10 watts of power.

So SIMPLE MATH- FOR EVERY $65 SHE WAS SPENDING TO LIGHT HER HOUSE SHE’S NOW SPENDING $10

Also, if you’re afraid that they’re going to make you put in those weird looking squiggly lightbulbs- that’s just not the case.  YOU CANNOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE LIGHTBULBS THEY REPLACED WITH THE ONES THEY INSTALLED!

NO BRAINER CITY BABY!

If you’ve been following our energy conversation found here you read from Arthur Bevilacqua who pointed out that we are all, no matter what being assessed a close to 1 cent per kWh energy efficiency charge on every bill whether you take advantage of these programs or not and he added that we’re crazy not to take advantage of them.

Look on your current bill for yourself- you don’t have the option to opt out of the Energy Efficiency Charge but that charge that is on everyone’s bill is what is paying for programs like the one my mom took advantage of today, so it’s on you if you just feel like paying the Energy Efficiency Charge on your bill and not reap the rewards of it while others do.

The lightbulbs that they used to replace the old ones- you cannot tell the difference except the new ones draw 10 watts of power instead of 65 watts.- Same amount of light coming out of them and same hue, not sterile white light.

Here’s just some of the free stuff that was installed at my mom’s-

Ted Talks: Nancy Frates: Why my family started the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The rest is history

image

From TED TALKS:

When 27-year-old Pete Frates injured his wrist in a baseball game, he got an unexpected diagnosis: it wasn’t a broken bone, it was ALS. Better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS causes paralysis and death—there is no cure. And still, Pete saw an opportunity to drive awareness about the disease. In a brave talk, his mom Nancy Frates tells the story of how the family developed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and took great pleasure in seeing everyone from Justin Timberlake to Bill Gates take part. If you accepted the challenge, please take the next step: share this talk as you did your challenge video.

Try To Look Worse Keene State. You Can’t.

What happened to getting going to parties and trying to hook up when you were in college?

What’s with the violence?

Doesn’t look like my idea of any kinda fun at all.  If the demographic displayed in these videos are the student population from Keene State then their PR department better have some magical wizards or something.  Right now people sending their kids off to school you gotta figure Keene State just raced to the very last pick in the US.  Like if you gotta pick between Keene State and garbage collector you almost gotta go garbage collector.  Beats getting smoked in the head with a bottle.  Not sure how you recover from this kind of bad look.

The kids in this video make the drek that hangs out in the MacDonalds /7 Eleven Parking lot look like the Debutantes and future rulers of America. Mutant City at Keene State Pumpkin Fest.  Mutant City.

If you’ll be in NYC you can get tickets HERE. The NYC Food Film Festival is a wonderful event, where people who love food can eat, drink and watch films about the growing, prepping and cooking of all kinds of food.

Editor’s note: Paolo Laboa and wife Mercedes will be opening up shop in the former Alchemy space soon.
