Helpful tips

  • If your internet service provider provides you with network equipment, ask them to supply you with ENERGY STAR certified products.
  • Give your equipment a vacation too. If you plan to be away on vacation or for an extended period of time, turn off your modem and router to save energy while you're not there.
