These power-consuming devices (like cable boxes, battery chargers, etc.) are often called: "Energy vAMPires".
According to some commercial power suppliers, these devices can account for between 10 to 20 percent of our average electric bill.
One way to help save energy costs, however, is to consider replacing or upgrading these older devices with ENERGY STAR® labeled devices.
ENERGY STAR is a voluntary labeling program of the U.S. government designed to identify and promote energy-efficient products.
Accordingly, we offer for your approval, 3 questions about ENERGY STAR.
Please choose your answers from any of the 3 (reuseable) answers of "A", "B", or "C" (if applicable!) for each question.
OK, let's power up...

History & Accomplishments
[Q2]: ENERGY STAR is a joint voluntary program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency.
[Q1]: In 1992, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) introduced ENERGY STAR as a voluntary labeling program designed to identify and promote energy-efficient products [Q3]: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Computers and monitors were the first labeled products.
Through 1995, EPA expanded the label to additional office equipment products and residential heating and cooling equipment.
[Q2]: In 1996, EPA partnered with the US Department of Energy for particular product categories.
The ENERGY STAR label is now on major appliances, office equipment, lighting, home electronics, new homes and commercial and industrial buildings and plants.
Through its partnerships with 18,000 private and public sector organizations, ENERGY STAR delivers the technical information and tools that organizations and consumers need to choose energy-efficient solutions and best management practices.
ENERGY STAR has successfully delivered energy and cost savings across the country, saving businesses, organizations, and consumers $24 billion in 2012 alone.
Over the past two decades, ENERGY STAR has been a driving force behind the more widespread use of such technological innovations as efficient fluorescent lighting, power management systems for office equipment, and low standby energy use.
