I’ve been a self-proclaimed energy miser for most of my life.
But I apparently am not as frugal as I could be, and Sense helped me figure that out!
An example is turning off an extra monitor that I use for my work-at-home office when I am not using it. I find an extra monitor to be very helpful with my productivity.
I can reference a document while creating an email response or a PowerPoint presentation. The larger screen allows me to see more of a large Excel spreadsheet. But what did NOT occur to me was that I didn’t need to leave it on all day long!!! Much of my work does not require an extra monitor, yet I turned it on in the morning, and left it on all day long, needlessly burning electricity.
Now, I turn it on when I need it…and turn it off when I don’t!
This probably saves me about 100W for 8 hours a day…
