Living in Nova Scotia I frequently check Efficiency Nova Scotia website and Facebook page to look for electric tips, rebates, etc. Today I found a great one and was quite shocked to see how much energy consumption is wasted when items are on standby!
Here is an example of exactly what I found on their Facebook page today and it’s well worth looking at to see how much you can save and gives you an amazing idea of what you should be unplugging tonight!!
Standby power is electricity used when appliances are off or in standby mode. Did you know a digital cable box, in standby mode 24 hours a day, can cost $20 per year while your laptop costs $11?
This piece of information alone can shave lots of your electric bill! Where are you going to start your shaving at??
These are just resources from the Nova Scotia Efficiency website; if you have resources in your province to share please put them in comments! It doesn’t matter where we live this information can be used anywhere!
