Plug Loads Make a Difference
Making a difference is easier than you might think. It's true that you may not have control over how much your building is being heated or cooled, but your building plug load is something you can almost certainly take action on!
Why Unplugging Devices Matters
Standby power, also known as vampire load, phantom power, or ghost load, is the electricity consumed by an electronic device while it is “turned off” or on standby mode.
Vampire devices slowly drain energy from plugged-in devices without you noticing. While most people don’t think twice about the devices they leave plugged in, taking a moment to unplug electronics can add up to big energy savings!
