The holiday season has a funny way of filling our hearts and draining our bank accounts. Make this season energy-efficient without breaking the bank – we’ve got simple yet effective tips to help you and your family save money and energy.

Binge-watch holiday classics on a tablet

Make the switch to an ENERGY STAR® certified tablet and binge-watch your favorite holiday specials. These tablets are the most energy-efficient choice for streaming content AND they use significantly less energy compared to standard tablets, TVs, consoles or other streaming devices. Not only will you be able to enjoy as many holiday movies and cheesy series as your heart desires, you will save on energy and reduce your carbon footprint! Perfect for guilt-free consumption that’s good for your wallet and the planet.

Smart power bars for a holly jolly home office

ENERGY STAR certified smart power bars are the perfect way to make a home office or study space more energy-efficient by reducing standby power! Although many people might not realize it, standby power consumption can make up to 10% of a household’s energy use. Smart power bars make saving energy simple, just plug devices in and turn them all off with the flick of a switch.
