    Sustainability

    Partnership for a Green City Energy Tip 10 – Vampire Load

    Vampire loads come from equipment that draws power, even though it may be turned “off”. The following items use the most “stand by” power in a home or a school (and they are all entertainment oriented). The Set Top boxes with our TV (DVR, digital cable, digital cable with DVR, satellite, satellite with DVR) average 28.28 watts when “Off” and 30.20 watts when “On”. That is the number of watts used every hour – 24/7/365.You have the power to make a difference in what you plug in and unplug.
