Earth Month Tip: Power down


Did you know U.S. households spend approximately $100 per year to power devices not in use? That’s roughly 8 percent of household electricity costs.

Nationwide, the total electricity consumed by electronics while idle equals the annual output of 12 power plants. Powering down electronics not in use will help save you money and prevent carbon pollution.
