LANDING, N.J. (Oct. 31, 2017) – With scary
and spooky creatures roaming the streets across the South Jersey region this
Halloween, Atlantic City Electric provides tips to help customers ensure energy
“vampires” don’t suck you dry when it comes to your energy use.
Vampire energy, also known as standby energy, is the energy
drawn from outlets when equipment is off but still plugged in. Many types of
electronics and office equipment, including mobile phone chargers, computers,
printers, game consoles, and more, continue to draw electricity while they are
plugged in and turned off. Phantom energy can account for 15 percent or more of
the total electricity used by these devices.
