Discussion:

I did used the electrical energy, solar energy, natural gas fuel, gasoline fuel as well as wood in the three day testing periods. The energy usage for different type of the fuel is different. Mostly the electrical energy used for the applications like lighting and other miscellaneous applications like television, computer, VCR etc. Gasoline fuel is used in my vehicle for the traction applications. I did used solar energy for water heating applications, Natural gas is used for cooking requirements. Electrical company of my region is using Coal as a fuel for power generation, it is from Bakersfield power plant of California .

At present my energy usage is more on the electrical usage side. Inorder to reduce my electricity bills on the electrical consumption side, I will try reducing the usage of the electricity, grid connected by replacing the same by the electricity generated with the usage of photovoltaic cells. Also my gasoline bills are also coming high, I would like to reduce the usage of gasoline by converting my vehicle to run on CNG. Electrical lamps in my house are mostly incandescent at present, I will be changing all of them to LED.
