This Home Energy Brief focuses on electronics. This Brief covers energy efficient office equipment and Energy Star appliances, power management for computers, standby mode, paper use, and the life-cycle cost of electronics. Great economic and energy savings can be found by simply changing our patterns of use with
electronic devices. Turning a piece of equipment off or unplugging it when it’s not in use is the easiest way to save energy and money. In addition, Energy Star product listings are a great place to look for energy efficient devices.
As of 2012, the Home Energy Briefs have been updated and adapted to Southern California Edison’s Online Home Energy Guide.
