I spent my earth hour at Capital Records Building the other night... even though we were surrounded by huge work lights for the contruction ...lol Capital did as promised and participated in the event. Fun to see it with my own eyes... here are some tips For all the portable electronic gizmos in your life, consider feeding them green power with a solar charger. Some look like notebooks, cell phones, flowers, or are built into backpacks. Your MP3 player, laptop, PDA, cell phone, and camera can all be charged with portable solar, and you'll never find yourself searching for a plug (see below for a list of chargers that TreeHugger has covered).
b. Turn off lights and other devises when they're not needed. Check out the How to Go Green: Lighting guide for more lighting tips.
Eliminating electronics that sleep on a standby setting; they continue to pull a current even when "turned off."
"Wall warts," those clunky AC adaptors on many power cables, pull current, too, so those should be taken out of the wall when not in use -- this is also known as phantom power. Your best bet is a "smart" power strip, or a power strip that can be turned off at night.
