Energy vampires are electronic devices that, when left connected to power outlets, will continue to use energy even when turned off. This includes cell phone chargers, laptops, and televisions. You can reduce your carbon footprint by unplugging your electronic devices after each use!
Energy vampires consume power when either switched off or in “stand by” mode. Another term for energy vampire is phantom load, which makes up 22% of energy consumption by appliances, and about 10% of “total residential consumption.” New devices made after 2007 must use less than 0.5 watts in standby mode.
