#1. Switch off the computer completely when not is use for long periods (example: more than 30 minutes). Leaving a desktop (300W) on everyday for 8 hours (example: overnight) will cost about S$20 a month.

#2. The lower the temperature setting, the more energy used by air-conditioner. If you use an air-conditioner, set the temperature at 25°C or higher. For every degree raised, save about S$25 a year.

#3. Choose energy efficient light bulbs (example: compact fluorescent lamps). Using a compact fluorescent lamp (7W) instead of an incandescent bulb (40W) can save about S$20 per bulb per year.

Time is bad..Save money..Invest wisely..

I could most defintley benefit from the first option. I generally leave my computer on all day and all night, as I sometimes need to check things right away so it is just easier but I suppose that in these tough economic times that may not be the best idea.
