NPR's All Tech Considered had a piece earlier this week (listen) about reducing energy consumption and they pointed out some cool gadgets and websites. I liked this inexpensive device called a Kill-A-Watt that you plug your appliances into to measure their electricity usage. And, they talked about reducing phantom, or vampire, power - like using smart power strips that know when to shut down. Their research for the story is available online.
