Did you know that each year tens of billions of dollars are wasted on electricity for appliances in homes and businesses that aren't being used? In the US alone, unused appliances suck up over 100 billion kilowatt hours of electricity and cost homeowners more than $100 each year!
Not only is this a waste of money, but it's also hurting the environment since the majority of electricity still comes from fossil fuel power plants. And it's a simple problem to fix!
Take the pledge to reduce the amount of electricity you waste in your home by unplugging unused appliances, using power strips, and replacing inefficient appliances.
Vampire energy not only wastes money, but it is also hurts the environment.
I pledge to figure out what appliances in my home are currently wasting energy while turned off and henceforth will unplug those appliances when not in use or use a power strip to cut off the electricity and will replace old broken appliances with more efficient models.
