Organize an Energy Star Energy Vampire Event
Energy Star Vampire Event pdf
Standby power is the energy used by some products when they are turned off but remain plugged in to a power outlet. While this standby power sometimes provides useful functions such as remote control, clock displays, and timers, in other cases it is simply wasted power as a result of leaving an electronic device or power adapter plugged in. The devices causing this waste are known as energy vampires because these products are slowly sucking energy. Use this checklist to get started planning your Energy Vampire Event!
