Did you know that in the US nearly 4 plus million people work from home... Working from home saves energy and time by cutting out the commute, but it may also increase your home energy bills a lot unless you use energy-saving equipment. Look for ENERGY STAR labeled office equipment. Overall, ENERGY STAR labeled office products use about half the electricity of standard equipment. Along with saving energy directly, this equipment can reduce air conditioning loads, noise from fans and transformers, and electromagnetic field emissions from monitors.
Remember simple things such as unplugging battery chargers when batteries are fully charged or the chargers are not in use, use rechargeable batteries when you can. More cost effective than throwaways! Look around I am sure you will find more ways to save!
