Would my energy bill go down if I covered my roof in hay?

    Not directly. The hay may help to keep your house a little bit cooler, if your roof is a dark color. Yellow is a somewhat reflective color and will keep more heat off of your house. If this causes you to use the heater less, then yes, your energy bill will go down. Perhaps a better idea is to paint your roof white. Painting might be easier to arrange, and white is more reflective than yellow.
