    Stop this BS and slap a $10K rebate on EVs already.

    And if you buy a new furnace with an electronically commutated motor (ECM), they'll give you a $75 rebate too. Is that just another way of saying DC motor or what?
    That $75 won't drastically affect any savings you'll see with a new furnace as long as natural gas prices stay low, keep the old beastie tuned up and running.

    Make it 20k. That'll really move the needle. Will need to move to demand-based electricity pricing, but we need to do that anyway.

    What I want to know is how do you "save" $12 on a clothesline. Isn't it just a roll of string? Have things really gotten that pricey?

    No problem, I'll buy a fuckton of incandescents, put them in and then I'll get the sweet sweet LEDs.
    I even found an old Mercury thermostat on Kijiji for free and they swapped that out for a Nest.

    Clotheslines are not string, stranded steel wire with a flexible plastic cover.

    Still, I'm used to iron being $14 per ton. I can imagine it might be a little more pricey if they had the pulleys on it, but I was thinking $12 total.

    $12 total for a complete clothesline setup? Including pulleys, tensioners and some sort of system to elevate it all above the ground. Yeah, I'm old school and grew up in an era where clotheslines were used and even in our community one can still find them in use. $12 total, funny.

    If you got your name on the list last year for the no charge energy savings program(i think registration has been closed for about a year now) and have a non-programmable thermostat I believe you had a choice of an ecobee or nest.

    From the efficiency Alberta site:

    All products being installed are Ecofitt branded products, with the exception of the Ecobee thermostat, the Nest thermostat and the Embertec Emberstrip AV+ Advanced Power Strip

    Exactly!!! If this were to happen, we would look at one for our next vehicle. Probably a BOLT because my wife likes the small CUV things at the moment.

    A rebate for sure. After all, it's the gubment that pays, not the people

    EDIT. Rage kind of beat me to it.

    I got the Ecofitt confirmation for a smart thermostat install for my condo. Let's see how that goes...

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    I did my own "update" with the $1 LED bulbs in-store. Now Energy Efficiency won't leave me alone. They call me, leave messages, text me, and email me. I guess it's good that they are doing as much as possible.
