Some Energy-Saving Tips From CEA
As the summer season gets underway this weekend, the Consumer Electronics Association has issued a list of suggestions for saving energy, as well as money, in the summer months.
“Today’s electronics are more energy efficient than ever, a welcome benefit of the trend toward smaller, more technologically-sophisticated products,” CEA’s vice president of environmental affairs and corporate sustainability, Parker Brugge, said as part of the announcement of the tips. “The combination of energy-efficient design by manufacturers and energy-conscious usage by consumers goes a long way toward saving energy, especially during the summer months when power consumption typically spikes.”
The industry associations suggests that Americans check electronics for the Energy Star label, automate their air conditioning and other technologies, read product manuals for energy facts, unplug devices when not in use, and centralize electricity use with power strips.
