Plug Load Efficiency

Numerous on-site surveys have shown that 44% of all computer monitors and 100% of vending machines are left on after-hours.

Also, a larger percentage of computers are powered on but are left unused during the day? The average daily computer use is just 4 hours per day, meaning that approximately 35% of offices are empty at any given time during the workday.
