whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: so, remember you argued about incandescent vs CFL/LED lighting and offsetting of heating costs during winter?02:55
whitequarki've realized that the cost of W of heating via electricity is going to be much higher versus via gas or cogeneration02:56
whitequarkin... probably everywhere except someone with free natural gas, like, i dunno, russia? but russia has cogeneration everywhere.02:57
wpwrakwhitequark: unless you have a nice little "planwirtschaft", like in communist countries like argentina, where prices have nothing to do with cost. there, the e-kw can be some order of magnitude cheaper than gas for no reasonable cause03:02
whitequarkdoes argentina push for more efficient lighting?03:04
wpwraksure. a few years ago, there's been a great push towards CFL. so we have all the time bombs in the world now :)03:06
wpwrakit was perfectly times: maybe a year later, adequate LED technology would have been available also here.03:08
whitequarkyou could say you were plan-wirt-schafted03:11
