Many people look to find new ways to go green, and it may be important to do so in order to save money. A recent release from Consumer Reports that consumers don't need to go out of their way in order to save on both energy and money.
It is important to keep an eye on all electronics used in the house. If a computer is set to hibernate when it is not in use, it will save a significant amount of money, Consumer Reports noted. With 30 cents of every dollar of energy costs blamed on electronics, it may be a good idea to ensure nothing is on when it is not being used. Even cable boxes should be updated, as new Energy Star specifications were enacted at the beginning of the month.
