Heat Going Up and Out the Attic?

Recently read about PG&E's new incentives to reduce gas consumption (yay Russ).  Our problem is that the prior owners of our home went overboard with lighting.  So we need serious incentives to pull out energy-hog kitchen lights and replace them with the now-mandatory energy-sippers.  But lots of us are losing large amounts of heat through poorly insulated attics (or in our case, original 1913 single pane glass skylights....).

This Old House comes to the rescue with a nice piece,,20645175,00.html on home insulation.  Don't forget, it makes your house warmer in the winter AND cooler in the summer.  Insulation also regularly comes out at the top of the list for bang-for-the-buck energy efficiency improvements.
