Remember the good old days when “off” meant off? These days, turning things off isn’t as easy. Modern appliances use electricity even when they’re turned off. This can add as much as $100 to your annual energy bill.
You can stop energy vampires dead in their tracks.
Use a power strip as a central turnoff point for all your appliances. Unplug your chargers when you’re not using them. And look for ENERGYSTAR products that use less power in standby mode.
