I had solar company out today to look into installing solar panels on the house. My electric bill this month was $450 dollars, which is over $200 more a month than June. The difference is a little over 2 weeks of using my new Pass Labs X600.5 amps. These suckers consume 5 amps each at idle, so that is 10 amps constantly going up in heat, which also increases the AC running time. My two channel system has gone from a daily utility to a once a week luxury, and I may as well get rid of it at that rate. Anyway, hopefully with solar panels, and a bit more conservative use of the amps (no more leaving them on 24 hours a day), I can get this under control.
