Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who actually turns off a monitor rather than let it go into standby mode. I know that even with the monitor off, power is continually going to that and other devices. While I might waste only a few kilowatts in a year, if you were to add that up with 6 Billion people, you would have a significant amount of energy wasted.
That is where HiSaver comes in. Their series of Power Strips actually turn off at the strip, so power doesn’t need to travel to the devices. A sensor will notice if you are not using the device and turn the peripherals off until you wake the strip up.
Todd Cochrane talks with Thomas from HiSaver. You can then save about 60-70% of electricity. $99 price point throughout major retail stores.
