Home Idle Load: Devices Wasting Huge Amounts of Electricity When Not in Active Use

“There has been a veritable explosion in the number of electronics, appliances, and other equipment plugged into, or permanently connected to, America’s homes-65 devices on average in our study. Most are consuming electricity around-the-clock, even when the owners are not using them or think they have been turned off.”

Pulling the plug on standby power

“Strange though it seems, a typical microwave oven consumes more electricity powering its digital clock than it does heating food. For while heating food requires more than 100 times as much power as running the clock, most microwave ovens stand idle-in “standby” mode-more than 99% of the time.”
