Electric heat, electric hot water, electric cook stove, electric heated clothes dryer, and air conditioners account for 80 percent of typical monthly utility bills. It is absolutely not practical to operate these major appliances with electricity. They use from 20 to 100 times the power your TV uses. Other fuels produce heat at much lower cost. Use wood or propane fueled furnaces, propane cook stoves and water heaters; use gas fired clothes dryers (or just a rope in the sun).
