Summary

Paul and Jocelyn talk to Ernie and Erica about how to reduce your energy consumption through the use of incandescent light bulbs. Ernie explains how Paul is wrong. They talk about how the power companies are uninterested in you actually reducing your consumption. Ernie underlines that your heat bill is one part of the puzzle, but that solving one part of the puzzle will not save the world, whereas Paul says that if people could save 60% on their heat bill, instead of buying LEDs that would be a big step in the right direction.

Is the opposite true? In other words if we can cut our heating bill by using incandescent, can we cut our cooling bill by using LED?
