Ideas on conserving energy

Well, here’s my post for “Blog Action Day.” This is more of a to-do list for me than anything else, but you may find it useful.

1. Don’t leave my PC on overnight for warez downloads. Or at least do so less often.

2. Have a dark wallpaper rather than a light one, since it uses less electricity. Also, it looks cooler.

3. Unplug my cell phone charger. Not only does a charger use up 95% of the energy it would use to charge when it is simply plugged into the wall not charging anything, I don’t actually own a cell phone.

4. Replace old light bulbs with new energy-efficient light bulbs. This one will be hard. I’ve sort-of gotten used to my burned out light bulb. It’s comforting. Also, I have an excuse for when during an intense gaming session my parents tell me to turn on the damn light before I hurt my eyes.

I'm a rather boring, geeky college student. Most of my time is spent at a computer, reading a book, or sitting in (mostly uninteresting) classes. My hobbies include reading, blogging, creating and running websites, creating amateur video games, arguing incessantly on discussion forums, and buying books on amazon.com because I'm too lazy to go to the library.

    I really needed that info about a cell phone charger. I’ve always left mine plugged into the outlet and will stop doing that now, when it’s not in use. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Just to add to the different methods of saving resources like water it would be beneficial if organizations all over the world can be encouraged to store water produced from thier Air Conditioners and the same can be used to water trees and for many more purposes as it is the cleanest form of water(ie. Water Vapour).

    Even households can be encouraged for the same.It requires only a simple tube connected from the Air Conditioners Water outlet to a bucket.

    This could save lot of water annually.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Kunal
