Trick-or-treating this Friday? Be afraid ... very, very afraid! Halloween poses more risks than ghoulies, ghastlies, and ghosts. While your out, your cell phone charger will be burning up power even if you have the phone with you. Your sleeping computer will be doing the same, as will your your modem and wireless system. Even your innocent TV, with that little red light keeping your remote control company, will be using electricity. What's happening?
17-25 % of your household electricity.
It can add up to 10% of your monthly electric bill.
It costs US homes and businesses
an estimated $1 - $3.5 billion annually.
