the elimination of standby power

The old saying goes, “A penny saved is a penny earned.” An easy way to save money is to optimize your use of electricity. With the country thinking “greener,” energy conservation has been an ongoing trend lately.

Eliminating standby power using a surge protector with remote switch is a simple solution that will help reduce your electricity bill. With an attractive sale price of $30, the opportunity has arrived to get a current surge protector with denting your wallet too bad. Belkin includes six remotely switched outlets and two always on outlets with this surge protector. You won’t have to worry about disconnecting your router.

The slim design is a space saver, and the sliding covers help prevent accidents from occurring with the outlets. Surge protectors keep your electronics working in case an electrical surge runs through your home’s wiring, so owning one is a wise investment.

The remote switch is a new addition. Instead of having to access a tight space the surge protector might be located in, a simple push of a button on the remote will switch off the unused outlets. Think of the plugs you might keep inserted into outlets that you may only use once a day or even once a week. Most chargers close the circuit and consume electricity. LCD monitors, HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and even your desktop computer use electricity on standby.

Simply remember to switch off a surge protector when the connected devices are not being used is a great contribution to energy conservation that will eventually pay for itself.
