As little as 30% of your electric bill may be the cost of the actual energy your business uses.

How Much of My Bill is Actually for the Energy?

If you’ve ever traveled abroad, you’ve probably noticed how most of the rest of the world unplugs their electronics when not in use. Many appliances are still working even when you think you turned them off. This is called “standby power.” Standby power is actually the minimum power used when something is plugged in. While this simple task may seem like a hassle, savings can add up to hundreds of dollars a year, plus you’re protected from power surges and potential fire hazards.

Points for single no-use nights, compounding points for each consecutive night without use and max points for eliminating non-essential electronics altogether!
