Four ways to sink electricity costs in the office
Auch nach dem Abschalten ziehen viele Geräte noch Strom. Mit ein wenig Aufmerksamkeit können Sie in Ihrer Abteilung Kosten senken.
See if your company will agree to having a switch installed that turns off all equipment at the mains. The savings could be enormous.
2 Switch off your monitor
Remind your colleagues: if they are going to be away from their desks for any length of time, they should switch off their monitors.
3 Change system controls
Adjust the system controls of your computer (at ‘Systemsteuerung’) so it uses less electricity.
4 Buy sensibly
When it’s time to buy new electrical equipment, make sure it is energy-saving. In Germany, look out for the Energy Star or the GED-Energielabel. You can find energy-saving office equipment on the internet at www.energiesparende-geraete.de.
