It is time to power down! It is predicted that our energy costs are going up over 40%. For some of us who do not use air conditioning this summer, we may be able to keep our power bills at a minimum. For folks who need the luxury of air conditioning; they will see these costs this summer. Rising power costs are not as frightening in the heat of the summer as they are in the winter. Using power strips can save you money by not allowing appliances with such things as clocks to continuously suck power even when not in use. During an ongoing energy crisis such as predicted with Peak Oil, the power grid could be off line for several days at a time or even indefinitely. It is helpful to begin planning and practicing now for "The Long Emergency". If for some reason Peak Oil doesn't happen, it will still save you dollars by doing a power down and putting your appliances on power strips!
