How many kW-hours of brain burn did you expend coming to this conclusion....
I remember someone chastising me for leaving a couple of lights on 24 hours a day in the house while on a trip. "DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THAT COSTS ? ! ? ! ? !" was their dumbfounded beseachment. So I did the numbers and it worked out to about 25 cents a day at the then current rates. That was quite a few years ago though. Of course even if the rates went up by 4 or 5 times since then (likely) I'm still at around 25 cents a day since I swapped over to the lower power flourescent screw ins over the last couple of years. Small cost for home security since lighted houses are broken into far less frequently.
