Winterize your Home Don’t Forget the Power Strips!
Many popular electronic gifts (like gaming systems) use a lot of energy, even when the devices are on “standby.”  The average U.S. household spends about $100 per year to power electronic devices when they aren’t in use.  To keep power usage down, turn them off from a power strip.  Newer "smart" power strips can sense when your electronics are idle and cut off the power flow to them.
