unplug the vampires

The Jan/Feb 08 issue of GOOD magazine includes an informative illustration of what it costs to keep your electronic gadgetry plugged in 24x7 for a year. Reduce your power consumption: unplug the vampires when not in use.

That new plasma TV you’re getting for Christmas? Plan for an electric bill increase of $160/year.

I like the vampire theme. It is memorable and makes the data so much more interesting that a bar chart. Click the pic for a close up view.
