Hello.  My wife and I got involved with the Connecticut Light & 
Powers rebate program this year.  You get a rebate if you can show a 
decent reduction in energy usage over last year.  We made sure all 
our bulbs in the home were the energy saving florescent type, and 
also got a new fridge (which we desperately needed 
anyway).  Additionally, we don't use the dryer unless its for our 
flannel bed sheets.  My wife hangs up our laundry in our enclosed 
front porch (which we do not really use anyway), and I made clothes 
lines in the cellar to take advantage of the heat from our furnace.
The result?  A 500 kh decrease from last years reading (i think they 
did a 4 month study).  Our rebate:  $40.  This months electric bill, 
instead of being the usual $120, was only $48 (that was with rebate 
applied).  Next month, if all remains the same, it will be 
$88.  Still a good $30+ dollars less than usual.
