1. POWER DOWN YOUR COMPUTER WHEN NOT IN USE
Computers are some of the biggest energy users in offices. Most people will leave their computer on all day and night. Computers are rated for many thousands of power cycles these days. If your computer is not in use, especially overnight, power down.
2. PICK THE RIGHT BULBS
LED Bulbs are 75% more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. They also last about 25 times longer! Make the switch to the right bulbs this year!
3. UNPLUG IDLE ELECTRONICS
Do you know that most electronics will still draw power even when turned off? Have you ever unplugged your cell phone charger from the wall, even when it was not in use, and it was hot to the touch? Make an effort to unplug all electronics that are not in use, or, use a surge protector that can be switched off and on when you need to use it.
4. TURN OFF THE LIGHTS
Lastly, and the most easy of all, turn off the lights in rooms that are not in use. One switch and that is it!
