Interesting article and eye-opening! Satellite boxes use about as much energy when they’re turned off.
I particularly noted this passage:
“Energy experts say the boxes could be just as efficient as smartphones, laptop computers or other electronic devices that use a fraction of the power thanks to microprocessors and other technology that conserves electricity. Ideally, they say, these boxes could be put into a deep sleep mode when turned off, cutting consumption to a few watts. At that rate, a box could cost less than $1 a month for power, depending on how much it is used.”
Solved! Go to Solution.
