use less electricity
Authored by: Scripter12 on Oct 06, '07 01:12:25AM

Using less electricity is always a good idea. The amount saved by turning off a modem and router will vary from person to person. It is good you made us think of this. Silent devices like this are often skipped over when we think about our power usage.

A router and modem might only use 10 or 15W but if you include that in you list of other devices to regularly power off that may come to a much more substantial sum.

Even just 10W can be important. If a million of us (0.3% of the population) did this every night that could come to something like 50 megawatt-hours every day and that is nothing to sneeze at.
