We don't usually pay a lot of attention to the power strips buried under our desk in the cord spaghetti but maybe we should. Because an eco-friendly power strip like EcoStrip might just hold the secret to saving real money by harnessing the power of energy efficiency. Energy efficiency remains a huge opportunity for homes, offices, and corporate sustainability programs to save resources and save money, estimated by McKinsey and Company in 2009 to represent over a trillion dollars in potential savings. Solutions often involve long lists of things we should do like turning out the lights but the best solutions are simple and making savings automatic. One of these is EcoStrip, an eco-friendly power strip that saves energy and saves money all on its own without nagging anyone or sending memos about recycling. If you're in charge of producing solid results with your company's sustainability efforts, EcoStrip is a solution to consider because the results are automatic, significant, and boost the bottom line.
Studies have shown that all of the electronics around the office can suck up a surprising amount of energy even when people go home at the end of the day. Standby power drains from electronics in the home and office are thought to consume billions of dollars in wasted energy each year. Powering down your PC when you're not using it is one step that helps, but what about the other devices that go along with computers like printers, scanners, and speakers? When left on every night of the year, the cost of these adds up.
