Mr. Green

Great points. We've been eliminating vampire devices like you describe as much as possible, whenever possible. Of course, the challenge comes from devices like DVRs which you want to come on to record your favorite shows or any other devices that need to be on at certain times of the day. To address this we recommend a variety of devices; from timers to auto-sensing power strips that cut power to devices when they enter standby mode.

Little changes can drive big results! The easiest way to make the largest impact is to talk with one of our Priority Energy Planners. They will help you understand where your power is going; how much is dedicated to these vampire like, always on, base load devices vs seasonal appliances (air conditioners). Visit us at www.priorityenergyplanning.com to learn more.

Yes, this is an important issue and it is one of the easiest steps to implement in "going green".
Manufacturers have gotten away far too long with making machines and gizmos that dont turn off when you turn them off! Hopefully this will change.
