That is a useless idea. The current drawn by even a 100 watt bulb is inconsequintal when compared to the current drawn by your HVAC system as it heats or cools your house whether you or home or not, or by your water heater if it is electric. Also there are all the electronics that we keep plugged in and on such as computers, TV's, stereo systems, clocks, microwaves, etc.
Besides, the power company doesn't care whether you are home or not and can't tell if you are or aren't. (I'm an engineer with a power company. We just want you to keep using those kilowatt hours and send us your check each month. After all someone has to pay my exorbitant salary. Although come bill paying time it doesn't seem so exorbitant!)
(Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
