I for one value these kind of posts.
Number One your an educated professional not someone living under a rock
No offense to anyone that does live under a rock 🙂
Knowledge is power
I have a generator and I also have a limited amount of Solar and Wind power
in power small power plants that I own, no renting from Oncor or anyone else.
I attempt conservation, routinely
and during peak power use warnings from Oncor and others I do kill a couple of monitors in my Ham Radio Station
By un plugging them.
A lot of today’s modern electronics still consume
electricity when “powered off”
Hence, I unplug some devices like monitors.
Actually all my monitors are tied to a switch box, allowing “un plugging by pressing a mechanical switch on the front panel of said box.
I normally have Seven Monitors on in my shack, when I am in Contest mode
Two less for now contests.
Powering down (unplugging) all but two can decrease usage from the ham shack.
