Beware of energy vampires! They stick their teeth (plugs) into your sockets and suck energy (and money). Vampire power is also known as phantom loads or standby power.
What do you think? Is a phantom stealing your electricity? Check out this video created by Natural Resources Canada. After you watch, define standby power and explain how to guard against those energy vampires.
What do you think? How can you use entrepreneurial thinking to change? If you still aren't convinced, Vlad provides us some data about vampire power.
Did you know that the more watts something uses, the more you pay for electricity! Now, participate in an energy vampire hunt! What did you find? How can you use entrepreneurial thinking to change something you are doing? After you change, how much money did you save?
