Save The Planet, Don’t Blog Today
In an effort to conserve energy and relieve stress from the Northeast power grid, Baltidome will stop blogging for the next few days.
From the U.S. Department of Energy:
Many appliances continue to draw a small amount of power when they are switched “off.” These “phantom loads” occur in most appliances that use electricity, such as VCRs, televisions, stereos, computers, and kitchen appliances. Most phantom loads will increase the appliance’s energy consumption a few watt-hours. These loads can be avoided by unplugging the appliance or using a power strip and using the switch on the power strip to cut all power to the appliance.
