Green Tips
Turn off your computer and monitors at the end of the workday whenever possible. If you leave your desk for an extended time, turn off your monitor. Unplug equipment that drains energy when not in use (i.e. cell phone chargers, fans, coffeemakers, desktop printers, radios, etc.). In particularly inefficient appliances, standby power use can be as high as 20 watts, according to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. "For a single appliance, this may not seem like much," the laboratory's Web site says, "but when we add up the power use of the billions of appliances in the U.S., the power consumption of appliances that are not being used is substantial."
