Standby Power in Australia

Australian households could cut almost 12 percent from their energy bills by turning domestic appliances off at the wall, according to a report on our use of standby power. Money isn’t all you’re saving, a 10 year strategy to reduce the use of standby power, has been released following a meeting of the nation’s energy ministers at the Ministerial Council on Energy in Brisbane. The Federal Industry Minister, Ian Macfarlane, said that stand-by power consumption accounted for up to 11.6 percent of the nation’s household electricity usage, costing more than $500 million a year and generating about 5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum. see media release 2 December 2002
