How Much Energy Is Used At Your Computer Desk?

Posted on Sunday, July 20 2008 @ 01:12:02 CEST by


OCIA.net has posted their latest article entitled: How Much Energy Is Used At Your Computer Desk? Below is a direct quote from the article:
"If a computer is plugged into a wall, and nobody is there to turn it on, does it still use energy? While a more familiar question with trees begs existential consideration, the answer to my question is far simpler; it’s yes. As gas prices go up and up, everyone is looking to economize and save money everywhere they can. Phantom energy, electricity drawn by devices not in use, is one target of many people’s efforts. Still, a lot of us think that the minimal wattage used by an empty cell-phone charger isn’t worth the hassle and that there are bigger fish to fry. The <1W pull we observe in chargers and other small appliances leads us to forget about unplugging our devices altogether, even the bigger ones. What about your computer, though?"
Check it out over here.
