This is my first blog. I postponed my urge to blog, until I have something useful to share with you, my reader!
I found one. I have an issue. My power (electricity) bills were very high. We moved to my current house few years back and I noticed we do not have any control over energy consumption. Some quarterly bills were around $800 mark. In my previous house, we had a quarterly bill of $300.
So, what is the big deal? I expect you to be interested how I manage my house hold energy consumption?
Well, I believe you will have some interest because:
- the issue is real: I do not have to eloborate much about Green house gas and Global warming. So reducing power consumption will reduce our carbon foot print. If I can reduce, you too can!
- the dollar savings are real: Even if you are Global Warming sceptic, I am sure the montly savings will be off interest to you.
- More importantly you may be interested in the way I am going to achieve my power reduction goal. I am going to try a proven process methodolgy known as “Lean-Six Sigma”. The followers of Lean-Six Sigma will vouch that these management philosophies underpin the success of Toyota, Motorola and GE. The critics will complain that the methods are yet another management jargon.
I am going to experiment this methodology in my home to achieve my power reduction goal. My team includes my wife and two daughters of age 16 and 12.
Do you think I will succeed? Watch this space!
