Ed Begley Jr. Doesn't Like Vampires—Vampire Power, That Is

Careful about energy drains you may not be aware of.

A statewide project called Energy Upgrade California is rolling out a series of videos aimed specifically at Los Angeles County, and of course, Ed Begley Jr. is involved.

Energy Upgrade California is a project of the state's Energy Commission that aims to teach homeowners about the need for and availability of home improvements that save energy and money.

A newly released video stars Ed Begjey, Jr., and covers "vampire power"—energy that you don't even know you're using, usually on consumer electronics, televisions, and computers that rely on standby mode. 

Especially during the summer, this is important. The demand for energy is high, the children are out of school, the temperatures are hot and muggy, so the air conditioner is a temptation, if not a necessity.

Energy Upgrade California has specific information for every county, but while a calendar in Los Angeles is chock-a-block with events.

See the video above.

Ed Begley Jr. is the only celebrity greenie that I listen to because he seems honest about this as a lifestyle. He walks the walk and not just talks the talk unlike many who tout the environment. So, I'm unplugging in DC!
