This City Works For You: Save on Electricity
The city has put some very interesting facts on energy consumption up on their website. Information relating to cost per hour for running household appliances, from your electric blanket on preheat to your 100 Watt lamp.
Tips for energy saving at work include:
Turn off the photocopier when you leave - a photocopier left on overnight wastes enough energy to make about 1 600 copies!
Turn off your computer monitor - a monitor left on overnight wastes enough energy to laser-print about 800 A4 pages! By turning off your monitor energy consumption can be reduced by 50%
Leaving the lights on in an empty office overnight wastes enough energy to make about 1000 cups of coffee!
Save 10% of an air-conditioner electricity bill by turning the thermostat down 1º in winter
and up 1º in summer
