This Halloween, save money by warding off energy vampires and phantom loads with energy-efficient lighting and water-saving products at a deep discount! Energy vampires are devices that draw energy, or phantom loads, when they are in standby mode—plugged in but not in use. Many of our most cherished devices, such as cable boxes and coffee makers, suck up phantom energy, costing U.S. households an average of $100 per year.
The UW-Madison Office of Sustainability has partnered with Focus on Energy to offer exclusive discounts on energy-efficient ENERGY STAR® LEDs and water saving kits through the pop-up e-tail shop online. Open for a limited time from Monday, October 19 through Monday, November 2.
