Decreased Power Consumption?

Is there any information or estimates on the decrease in power consumption due to the recession? With all the plant closures and layoffs I am wodering if you feel there may be a diffence. The plant closures may be offset by the power used at home by someone who would usually be at work.

Unless she really knows what she's doing (I have some doubt) the safety guard should be put back on that grinder.

lol I would imagine that power consumption has dropped a wee bit.
Um, size of one's arms is not necessarily indicative of strength.

I suppose that means they'll have to raise their rates. That's how the energy sector operates right:

demand increases: prices go up.
demand decreases: prices go up.

It's a "free" market - that is - free to screw us!
