Could You Live on 800 Watts a Day?

Could You Live on 800 Watts a Day?

The average American home uses 45 kilowatt hours per day; this one uses only 800 watt hours--and it doesn't sacrifice on much to get there. Consider that a typical desktop computer, not including the monitor, uses 80W, this home does well. A few readers over at Treehugger are complaining because the stove and refrigerator are powered by LP, therefore not counted in the "watts" used, but nonetheless, it still has a Mac laptop, a 12V Widescreen LCD TV, a DVD player, and an efficient surround sound stereo system. We would venture to say that home like this makes living "green" much more appealing to the masses. -Pic and Source via Treehugger.
