Energy-Saving Tip:
Place Router and Modem on Timer

Put your wifi router and modem on a timer so they turn off at night while you are sleeping. Simple timers can be plugged into the wall outlet and set up to go off at specific times each day. By plugging in your wifi equipment to a timer, you not only save the energy needed to power it for eight hours a day, but you also reduce EMF emissions in your home while you sleep.
