SWITCH IT OFF – Save energy
Save climate – and your rent. Power guzzlers
When you completely turn off your electrical devices after use, you can save up to 50 % of the electricity. Hi-fi systems, TVs, computers and other devices are real power guzzlers in stand-by mode. Electricity with a value of about 4 billion euros is wasted only in Germany because of the stand-by mode every year. Socket strips with power switches are very useful to avoid this high waste.
They can be used where the light is turned on for more than one hour. Compared to common light bulbs they are about 80 % more economical. Their fifteen-fold lifetime justifies their higher prices.
No light needed
If there is nobody in the common rooms and the staircases, the lights can stay turned off.
