The Crone has spent money on a new purchase.
With all the dramas here in WA atm regarding gas shortages/electricity shortages, I decided to stop ummmming and arrrrhing and just go ahead and buy a Solar Oven.
Now Mr Premier try and tell me to cut back on my power usage!
For those of you who may not know, there was a gas pipeline explosion here in Western Australia a couple of weeks ago. Due to extreme shortages, we have all been asked to cut back on our power usage. In fact, one artical yesterday asked the following;
"CCI chief executive James Pearson said the gas shortage would ultimately cost the WA economy billions of dollars and households could help out by halving their energy consumption during peak periods for the next six months. He said if this did not occur, the Government would be forced into making a “tough decision” on domestic power rationing. He pleaded with households to adopt drastic measures such as taking cold showers, not using heaters and eating raw food in a bid to “save businesses and protect jobs”. "
Now to find out more about Solar everything, I don't want to be dependant on the grid for longer than I have too.
Did I mention that it is winter here in Australia ATM?
