Before I go to bed at night, I roam the house making sure the doors are locked and everything is switched off.
I‘ll bet you switch off your TV when its job is done.
At home, the toaster, the washer and the dryer shut themselves off when their job is done. But, not all appliances do that. When the cookies are baked, someone has to remember to switch off the oven.
It works the same way on the job, some equipment times out and shuts itself down when the job is done. At home your microwave works that way.
At work some motors and some conveyors work that way. But, most of the production equipment has to be shut off by some one who remembers that it is part of the job.
When you take a break, give the electric meter a break too by switching off fans and task lights.
When your job is done, at the end of your shift, switch off the equipment and lights before you head to the locker room.
Turn off your computer monitor when its job is done for the day.
One fan or one light or one computer monitor does not use much power.
But, where I work, there are hundreds of fans, thousands of lights and more that 500 computer monitors. In addition to the other equipment, they add up to tremendous amount of wasted energy when folks do not switch off the power when their job is done.
