Al Gore’s Nashville estate expends 21 times more energy a year than typical U.S. home, study says

Former Vice President Al Gore’s 10,070-square-foot estate near Nashville, Tennessee, expended more than 21 times more energy than the average U.S. household over the past year, according to a new report.

A report by the National Center for Public Policy Research — self-described as a nonpartisan, independent conservative think tank — said that according to data obtained from the Nashville Electric Service (NES), a public electric company that powers Mr. Gore’s home and most of Nashville, the 20-room mansion in upscale Belle Meade used 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity during the past 12 months.

That’s roughly 21.4 times more than the 10,812 kWh a year used up by the typical American household, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

    About 6 years ago I knew that Gore and Suzuki were frauds that owned 9 houses between them and jetted around the Globe.
    Public documents for Real Estate showed that Gore paid $40,000.00 a year for heating and AC .

    His family ran a mining business to rape the land and poison the rivers. He now worse because Naomi Klein and him don’t want the Brown or Black people in India and Africa to get Electrified neighbourhoods from power plants as to get Hospital , Medic Centre’s , schoiols , clean water or appliances to cook so the children don’t die from indoor wood cooking .

    Scratch a Liberal progressive and you’ll find a racist wanting to get even richer.

      Hey, Gore and Suzuki are cult leaders. They have the right to flaunt their wealth and be huge hypocrites.

      They are no different that Osho Rajneesh, who at the height of his power owned several hotels and the largest fleet of Rolls-Royce cars in the US in his time. He also liked to parade in front of his followers with his prized cars as well…

        The Gore Senate seat family franchise was known for pushing various blends of DemocRat weirdness from way back. No one ever caught the old folks actually praying to a statue of karl marx but …………. as Armand Hammer was wont to say back in the pre Al old days “Business is business”.

          If Gore had carried his home state during his run for the Presidency he would have been President. Thank God for the people who knew him best and told him to fuck off down the road.

    The first I heard about this years and years ago it was 20 times the average Tennessee home just to let you know that it’s roughly the same when keeping it in the same state and not being (possibly) warped by including averages from e.g. Alaska and Texas as a Gore-ista might want to claim.
