DID YOU KNOW
75% of all the electricity consumed in the home is standby power used to keep electronics running when they are “off.” The average desktop computer consumes from 60 to 250 watts a day. Compared with a machine left on 24/7, a computer that is in use four hours a day and turned off the rest of the time would save you about $70 a year. The carbon impact would be even greater. Shutting it off would reduce the machine’s CO2 emissions 83%, to just 63 kg a year.
