Don't you know about phantom energy, other names for it is standby power, vampire power or vampire draw?
Phantom power is really bad. Even though a device, for example, the phone charger, appears to be off, it constantly draws power from the power grid. Our electricity is run on nonrenewable energy sources. We are wasting electricity.
OMG! I promise I won't do that again! I don't want to waste energy! Ill tell my friends about it too! Thank you, dad!

To save energy, take off plugs that we don't need at the moment. That reminds me... I have to buy power strips, they have an on/ off switch on them and they actually work.
Thank you, dad, for telling me. I can't believe that this is true! I promise I will help conserve energy and try to stop standby power!
