It’s hot outside, and your home electronics are, too! When not in use, many idling electronic devices, including televisions, microwaves, and printers, use standby power to save warm-up time.
Remember: In the U.S. the total electricity consumed by idle electronics equals the annual output of 12 power plants! Consider connecting idling electronics to inexpensive power strips that can be turned on and off with the touch of a button, to simplify plugging and unplugging.
