They’re too busy working on a giant machine to block out the sun so we need more energy.

Sucks for them, I’m solar


turboda t1_j5rg9j6 wrote

Your still using them if you are.


NotSurHowTitanicEnds t1_j5rrz1y wrote

Youre actually helping them out too. They’re selling energy you overproduce to your neighbors. They charge your neighbors the same high price as everyone else but it cost Eversource very little. Im all for solar, just not Eversource benefiting from it.

They're ecstatic; it just means your meter is gonna start whirring once you turn on your lights.

While funny, LED bulbs are cheap and efficient. I’m starting to think I’m the outlier who barely lights the house and has the blackout shades pulled during the day if I’m at home.

Someone tell me I’m not the only one

I don’t have blackout shades, but I only turn on the lights if I need them, like when I’m cooking. Otherwise, I maneuver in the dark.

Well, it was meant as a joke. 😜

We, too, have all LED bulbs in our house, and my wife and I do make an effort to turn off lights in the house in rooms that are currently uninhabited. But as anyone with kids can attest there's always wasted electricity due to rooms with lights on and no one in the room.


crazybipolarbabe t1_j5r4bdy wrote

I can attest. Walking around the house multiple times a day to turn off all the lights the kids left on is how I get my exercise.


Jackers83 t1_j5rvaen wrote

Omg, that is the truth. Everyday I remind my kids. In one ear out the other.

Motion sensor switches! Legrand sells them in the box stores. The adorne collection is aesthetic and has numerous options.

Cellphone light only, unless I'm actively doing something with my hands.

It's adorable that you think Eversource has feelings. It's as if you expect them to give a shit which they clearly do not.

They will always be Candle Lights & Propane to me

Eversource will feel Ike “The future is bright.”


dirtyMETHOD t1_j5rs1q4 wrote

Probably just raise some prices, that’s how they feel

They are still assessing your comment, reaction estimated at 5 p.m. tomorrow

If it was scientifically possible, Eversource would shift the tilt and rotation of the earth to place Connecticut in the dark for 80% of the year.

They are prepared to charge us and arm and a leg...also they are prepared for us to lose power with any storm.
