i'm renting a room in a house that has 4 other guys in it, including the landlord. we're supposed to split the electricity bill 5-ways.
now, i don't have much stuff with me. in my room: tiny wireless router, laptop, desklamp, small wall lamp, and my cellphone charger.
the landlord lives on the first floor and always has lights on, has a desktop PC running 3 LCD monitors, halogen floorlamps, etc.
some old guy living next to me on the 2nd floor appears to have a bright halogen floorlamp and always has the TV on when he's awake.
i hardly consume any energy from my room. is it fair to ask that i pay less?
