Are you tired of overpaying for your electricity bill? The statement varies from month to month and you can never truly predict how much electricity you really use. Although you may think that you’re saving money when you are not using any electronic devices, the truth is as long as the devices are plugged in to an outlet, you are getting charged for electricity! Almost all computers, computer peripherals (printers, modems, scanners, etc.) and home entertainment products (stereo, DVD player, televisions, etc.) draw an idle electrical current even after they have been turned off. Some devices still draw the same amount of power even when turned off. To alleviate this, the device needs to be physically unplugged from the wall. Using a power strip allows multiple devices to be plugged into one unit. Rather than having to unplug multiple devices, you only need to unplug (and plug back in) the power strip in this case making it a much easier process that you are more likely to remember. Tri Cascade has a solution for you: i-BRIGHT7x Smart Surge Protector that smart enough can help you manage your electricity usage, reduce your monthly electricity bill, and even set up the schedule when you want the power for your devices to be turned on and off.
The Return On Investment
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average U.S. household spends $100 per year to power devices while they are off (or in standby mode).
