Light therapy energy - March 15, 2017

Spring is just around the corner, but here in New England, it only feels like it starts in May! After already spending so much energy on heat, light, and videogames throughout the winter, how much more energy should one spend on artificial light?

The answer is zero if you have good genes and are perfectly happy being depressed like me. But some people need light. Whether for mood, tanning or vitamin D, each one has a specific spectrum.

Currently, there is no commercially available artificial light that generates all three, nor does the winter sun. So, if you want to use artificial light, it will add roughly 3 kWh to your monthly electric bill.
