Holiday Gift Guide
With more time to spend at home with loved ones, there are sure to be plenty of cozy days and nights to stream your favorite shows and movies. Give a gift that can do a world of good this season, the gift of energy efficiency with an ENERGY STAR certified digital media player (DMP). They offer the latest technology and are, on average, 40% more efficient than standard models. If all digital media players sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the cost savings would grow to more than $200 million each year and 3 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from over 280,000 vehicles.
SAVE EVEN MORE
- Use the sleep mode. Some ENERGY STAR certified DMPs, if inactive for a period of time, automatically enter a low-power sleep mode. To maximize savings, you can lower the amount of time it takes for an inactive DMP to go to sleep. If your DMP is not capable of entering sleep mode automatically, manually turn your DMP off whenever you can to maximize your energy savings.
- Feel good about it. Saving energy helps you and your family save money on utility bills and protect the climate by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
- Stream Smarter. If your home entertainment system has both a game console and a digital media player as streaming device options, always use the digital media player because game consoles use considerably more energy for streaming.
