How to Save Energy and Money with your Gaming System

If you have kids, you probably have at least one video game system in your home, and they can be a big energy suck. There are energy settings on gaming consoles that can save money on your energy bill.

Xbox 360 – Instant on uses more energy, so turn it off and use nearly 98% less power while not in use.
Xbox Connect – Unplug it when it is not in use.
Playstation 4 – The latest software update will allow the machine to go into a low power mode after 1 hour of inactivity. And in Power Save Settings – set the time before power goes off. Set time limits for the machine to stop using power when not in use.
Wii U – These are already set up for energy efficiency.

Streaming – Stream through a computer or tablet, as streaming through a game console takes up to 10 times more power.
