Eco tip of the day, which I thought of intially as a solution to an annoyance:
Unplug modems / routers, etc. when not in use.
- Save money on electricity costs.
- Reduce data usage thus potentially saving more money, depending on your data plan.
- Prevent modem hackers from abusing your hard earned system (and running up your data charges).
- Reduce the annoyance factor of constantly blinking lights.
*Note: About a decade ago, VEEPOTUS Al Gore suggested unplugging unused appliances, media devices and computer equipment as a means to cut energy usage.
When considered mathematically – as millions continue to join in the effort – the positive environmental impact of collective unplugging is massive.
Though the potential of rooftop solar to provide unlimited free energy would offset such a need, there are other benefits of unplugging electrics whenever possible, like peace, quiet and no blinking lights, please.
