Wasted Energy

ImageImageImage

Date Completed: March 22, 2011

Energy is sucked out of outlets even when products aren’t in use.

One way to counter this is by using an energy efficient power strip that prevents power from being used when they are turned off. This can be great for things you don’t want to unplug like the TV and XBox.

The downside to these power strips is they generally are more expensive. This one cost me around $20 at Home Depot.
