Winter is usually the time when I use more electricity than I usually do. This is due to many factors. Most importantly, I need to use an electric heater to heat my home because sometimes it can be chilly here. My computer also consumes some electricity. In the past, I was not concerned about it. Today, I am starting to be. It seems that the better computer components I buy, the more electricity I use and the higher my bills are. Another topic I want to write about is electronics recycling. Only because I stop using a computer component does not mean that somebody else might not want to use it.
