No one likes to feel powerless, so don’t lose control of your own. Most people don’t realize it, but many of your appliances and electronic devices use electricity even when turned off. An estimated 6% of average U.S. household electric use is from standby power, which equals a whopping 43 billion kilowatt-hours of wasted energy per year. To put that into context, the average U.S. household uses only 11,000 kWh, so that would be like powering an extra 3.9 million empty households every year.
Luckily, you can keep the electric crooks of your home in line with an advanced power strip. Advanced power strips eliminate electric waste and help you save energy, which, in turn, helps you save money every month. Plus, like any true hero, advanced power strips help safeguard your equipment from electrical surges, so you don’t have to worry about repairing or replacing your electronics because of a power surge.
