Electricity use is on the rise in most homes. One reason we’re using more electricity is because we’re using more electronic equipment. We have home computer systems, home entertainment systems, DVD players, digital cable boxes, gaming consoles, and a multitude of devices that require charging such as cell phones and digital cameras. These are in addition to the traditional home appliances (refrigerators, stoves, clothes washers, etc.). Some of these appliances use electricity even when they are turned off. The average Wisconsin homeowner spends about $400 per year on electricity to run their appliances and household electronic equipment.
