I wondered into Maplins the other day and picked up some Energy Efficient Lightbulb's and a Electric Power Monitor like this one - thinking this would give me an idea on how much electric i'm wasting and where. well 48 hours later i'm still turning light's off and trying my best to get the Watts down to 0 some internet research has brought up some very shocking facts on the running cost's of thing's in my home. for example: Panasonic TH42PX8 - In-Use: 255W- Standby: 0.7W cost per year to run =£82.30 & £0.68 on standby Mac Pro 2.66Ghz £76.64 and £7.97 a year in standby another one : my Macbook Pro cost me £26 per year to run and £1.53 in standby my PS3 is a real hog! Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) - 60gb cost's £40.88 a year to run ! compare to my PSone(£1.08 a year to run) it a real hungry hog! Take a look and see where your hard earned money is going ! and as a big shocker the Dell Latitude d420 12" Craptop only cost's £8.14 a year to run ? now in my house i have gizmo's everywhere 2 x big screen tv's ps3/wii mac's all over the place - APE x 2 ,TC, 5 x External HDD's ,Setop boxes with HDD and DVD recorder, Amp, too many halogen light fittings , powershower , microwave , frezer, fridge, dishwasher ...... and so on i'm going to try and slim back on devices - i've started with the light's replacing them with the new energy one's so instead of 100w/60w bulbs i've got the new 10-12w green one's Any thought's?
