Well since I heat my large old house with electicity and
also have an electric range, as well as the computers,
large TV and a bunch of audio equipment, I could likely
throw in a couple of grow lights with barely a glitch in my
power usage. Maybe I should rent out space to a grower
to cover some of the hydro bills I've been getting this
winter in the subzero temperatures of central Manitoba.

 Hell, birds (the ones that don't fly south) are hovering
above my place just to keep warm.
