I got my latest Con Ed bill, for August. For many people August is their highest bill, from air conditioning.
Well, mine is zero kilowatt-hours for the third month in a row. Today is day 110, about 108 days longer than I thought possible before starting. You probably think you couldn’t do it. I thought I couldn’t either, until I did. Instead, this is Freedom: not hurting people. What else is pollution?
My supply charge is $0.00. I hear talk about rates increasing. I’m concerned that if they double, my supply charge may double to $0.00!
You may be glad to know I subsidized your costs with my basic service charge since I haven’t asked Con Ed to turn off my power.
I may reconnect the circuit to draw power from the grid soon. The broken solar panel means I don’t have any electrical power at home, only plugging in my computer and phone at NYU, where I am now.
