Biz Alert: Vampires!

Tampa Tribune:

Even when they’re off, many of your home office electronics are adding to the total of your power bill.

Conserve energy and save money this Earth Day by switching off electronics and using less energy.

But truly turning off the power isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. Many household electronics, known as “vampire appliances,” use standby power when turned off. The average home has 20 or so of these vampire appliances.

A Cornell University study found the average household will spend $200 a year for standby power.
