If not for the eco benefits, homeowners are on average trying to consume less electricity in order to reduce their electric bills during these trying economic times. A Scottsdale-based company, iGo, has established a resource for individuals who want to quit wasting energy and prevent the power company from sucking too much green out of their pockets.
Just as Count Dracula preys upon the innocent, Vampire Power, or the energy drawn from items like electronic devices or kitchen appliances that are plugged in but not in use, drains “blood” from the energy grid. With 10 billion dollars wasted annually on Vampire Power in the U.S. alone, every little bit counts when consumers do their part to protect the environment. In conjunction with Vampire Power Awareness Month visit VampirePowerSucks.com for information about how to stop sucking Vampire Power and a chance to win Free electricity for a year.
“While wearing garlic doesn’t get rid of this vampire, simple lifestyle changes will significantly reduce the power we each waste,” said Walter Thornton, vice president of product for iGo. “VampirePowerSucks.com compiles the most important information about Vampire Power, electricity conservation and more into one convenient place so that consumers can learn small ways to save big money on their energy bills while also protecting the environment.”
