Plug-Load Reductions

Electrical plug loads include all of the equipment and devices plugged in to outlets in a building (computers, monitors, printers, copiers, projectors, televisions, audio equipment, chargers, task lights, computer speakers, space heaters, etc.) There are two types of ways that these devices draw unnecessary power: either they are left on when people leave their office, or they are shut off but continue to draw power even when off (also known as phantom loads).
