Save Energy While You Work and Learn

Save Energy While You Work and Learn

With more family members working from home and students attending school remotely, energy usage in the home has increased. But there are ways to save energy and money, in your home office or study space – check out these tips below.

  • On personal computers, turn off your computer monitor if you aren't going to use your PC for more than 20 minutes.
  • Turn off both the computer’s monitor and hard drive if you're not going to use your PC for more than 2 hours.
  • Screensavers actually waste energy, but turning down the brightness on your computer screen saves energy.
  • Use an advanced power strip to help avoid “vampire load” – that’s when plugged-in computers, printers, smart devices, TVs, stereos and other equipment still use energy even when they’re turned off.
  • Spotlight your work spaces to use only the light you need.
  • Install LED bulbs, which use less energy and last longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.
