Energy Tip for Week of December 31st

by Press Release
December 31, 2018

“Vampire electronics” come with “phantom loads”; the electricity used when they are turned off or in standby mode. They are a major source of energy waste. It is estimated that 75% of the energy used to power household electronics is consumed when they are not in use, which can cost you up to $200 per year. 

Smart power strips, also known as advanced power strips, can eliminate the problem by shutting off the power to electronics when they are idle or turned off.
