Watt Watt

Watt Watt is a "community for individuals interested in electrical energy efficiency." It has forums on topics ranging from appliances to transport to renewable energy.

And speaking of energy, I got an interesting list of energy-saving tips in the mail from my local gas and electric company. Most of them are common sense, like only washing full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine, or setting your thermostat lower at night. But a couple were things I'd never thought of, like cleaning out the lint from the dryer after each use, or letting dishes in the dishwasher air dry if you have time. I might just have to post this on Watt Watt!
