6. Do sockets still use energy when chargers are left plugged in?
Ever wondered if devices on standby or chargers left plugged in still use power?
According to British Gas, they do.
Even though devices such as TVs and smart devices like Alexa are using small amounts of energy,
users should be sure to turn them off at the wall when they’re not in use.
Switching off at the plug won’t save you lots of energy or pounds straight away, but it does add up.
You could be saving around £60 per year.
Well now we know that saving energy could be as easy as turning a plug off at the wall or closing a door, we hope you can benefit from this.
If you believe that you’re just one person and that one person can’t make a difference, think again!
The more individuals that make an effort to save energy, whether it be to save the pennies, or help save the environment – it's worth doing.
