Re: ok computer guys
If anyone cares...that comes out to about 5300lbs of CO2 emissions in a year for that electrical power if your house gets power from a coal power plant (most do)...or about the same CO2 emissions as 273 gallons of gas (I am guessing about half the gas you use in a year).
An average house probably uses about 900-1400kw/hr a month in the hot and cold months...so your looking at an average of 21,600-33,600lbs of CO2 emissions a year to power the house from coal (okay, yeah somewhat lower because those few months of spring and fall electrical use is ususally lower, so lets say 15,000lbs on the low end...that is still a crap ton)
