Don’t Let Energy Waste Haunt You

Posted on Oct 11 2023 in Orange County REMC

Don’t let standby power haunt your energy bills! Phantom loads are electric devices that keep using power even when you’re not using them. Stop these energy ghosts by unplugging such devices when they’re not in use. 

For a more convenient option, plug several devices into an advanced power strip or smart plug, which automatically cuts power  to unused devices.

By following these simple steps, you can have a less “spooky” energy bill.
