Save Electricity by Monitoring "Phantom Load"

Did you know that even when your appliances are off, they often are still using electricity?  This article in the Boston Globe gives some good tips on how to minimize the cost of this "phantom load."   Resources mentioned include:

  • Discounted Power Cost Monitors from NStar & Blue Line Innovations: $29.95 from Blue Line Innovations (bluelineinnovations.com), transmits data to an in-house monitor that tells you how much electricity you are using
  • Federal Energy Management Program (oahu.lbl.gov): See how much power your idle electronic devices are drawing 
  • EnergyStar: (energystar.gov) Learn about energy-saving lights, appliances & discounts

 You can also test appliances yourself painlessly with Electricity Monitors.
