THE IMPORTANT BITS:
This is starting to sound like an audio log from System Shock, but until we manage to get power usage under control could everyone make sure to turn off the breakers before leaving the space?
Coincidentally, please remember to turn on the breakers when you get to the space every day as well. Don’t want anyone playing around in the dark.
I’ve left a diagram inside the breaker box (to the immediate left of you when you enter the space) with a list of breakers to leave on constantly, and breakers that you shouldn’t turn on when entering the space.
I’ll post a pic here next time I’m in the space, I’ll also just draw dots on each of the breakers to make things easier, rather than the current diagram.
One colour, leave on all the time. Another? Turn off every time you leave. Third to never turn on (I might just put a cover over those), finally, perhaps one to leave on if someone’s running a 3D print?
NOT SO IMPORTANT BITS:
I’d appreciate it if we could do this at least until I can get the keys to the meter box and do more concrete testing. If we can leave power off for the better part of July, that should give us some better answers.
Might try and see if we have a power meter as well, if not buy one. I doubt everything plugged in combined would be drawing more than 1kWh a day. It’d still be good to check.
