    Thermostat is at 64 in the winter (58 at night) and 76 in the summer.

    Our daily driver averages 42 mpg.  I continue to look at EVs and PHEVs, waiting for the right vehicle for our needs.

    Replaced all conventional incandescent bulbs with CFLs.  Looking for LEDs to replace our low voltage halogen lights but so far I haven't found what I want.  I'll keep looking.

    Installed more insulation for the house.

    Installed rooftop solar PV system last year that is large enough to supply 100% of our annual usage plus replace most of our natural gas usage, since we now heat the house with a heat pump.

      The next logical step forward would be an electric car powered by a solar pv system on the garage, imo.
