I have been doing this for years.

So many devices these days have long boot up periods, cant just unplug your TV, cable box, computer, router or many major appliances and expect them to power on instantly like a lamp. Doubly a shame because many of these devices have power hungry stand by power supplies that run all the time.

Always do especially when on your vacation

I just unplug all small appliances when not in use. This includes the tv and the cable box since I don't watch them everyday. We have big windows and lights are only turned on after dark. We just open the curtains and let the sunlight in during the day.

So. Avelaval. My leaves have drifted from me. All. But one clings still. I'll bear it on me. To remind me of. Lff! So soft this morning, ours. Yes. Carry me along, taddy, like you done through the toy fair! If I seen him bearing down on me now under whitespread wings like he'd come from Arkangels, I sink I'd die down over his feet, humbly dumbly, only to washup. Yes, tid. There's where. First. We pass through grass behush the bush to. Whish! A gull. Gulls. Far calls. Coming, far! End here. Us then. Finn, again! Take. Bussoftlhee, mememormee! Till thousendsthee. Lps. The keys to. Given! A way a lone a last a loved a long the—riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs.

I'm just turning lights off if I'm not in the room. Used to figure I'd be back in there soon and just leave the light on.

Power companies...NEVER LOSE,,look back,,They Never LOSE..read this crap with that Knowedge..

DO NOT USE WITH ELECTRIC HEATERS!

Where is number 1 I missed it.

I've been doing this for years,also,lpl

I wish you'd put out a video on the PROBLEMS with using AC strips! THEY have caused more fires than you realize!!!!!

Should I also turn off the water faucet after I'm finished with it?

You couldn’t find a picture of a US electrical plug? Really?

Good idea

Always

Yes yes yes yes 😁😊😊😊!!

Time to start a Band

Always

Or spend 5-5-1/2 hrs w/NO tv, internet, or phone !! Because some yahooo hit a telephone post!! Grrr!!!!!😠😤☠️

I appreciate this post but the use of "Michiganders" is an automatic demerit, especially after our subversive pinko governor used it repeatedly in a speech of national embarrassment

FUCK OFF.

The hate spreading, dividing media is truely our number 1 enemy! They have hurt and divided this country more in the last 4 years than anyother tragedy in it's history! Today with this pandemic, we Americans should be coming together, but the media keeps dividing us now with fear and panic! I hope everyone who reads this will at least think about it!!! Wake up, Americans, tell the hate spreading, dividing media they can't divide us any longer!!!

Peggy Noonan has some reassuring words as we all find ways to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic: “Everything works—and will continue to work—as long as we have electricity. It’s what keeps the lights on, the oxygen flowing, the information going. Everything is the grid, the grid, the grid.” Now more than ever, the importance of a strong, resilient electric grid cannot be overstated. peggynoonan.com/we-need-time-to-absorb-all-this/ ...

very true--we have just begun to fight --was a famous saying--I say--this country is the best and always was! Thanks to all who are giving their all--DTE thumbs up!

Thank all of you for the good job keeping us going everyday

Thank you Joe my son-in-law who works as an electrician for one of the county’s.

Thank you for keeping us all turned on and flowing. 🤝

Good thing our grid has been the same for over 50 years.

Thank You ! I can’t live without Oxygen .

OMG. Now I have another thing to worry about.

Want to raise their rates as of today. Attorney General of Michigan said no!

Another thing to be thankful for.

Thanks everyone things wifi get better soon

Vote 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 2020.

A SPIN? AEP is about to raise rates by tacking on a new surcharge. Cut the crap/commercial.

We’re fortunate!

You do have to be able to pay your bill!

Amen🙏🙏🙏💞

Totally agree

Kind of disgusting using the current crisis to promote this shady front for DTE. Folks, "Alliance for Michigan Power" is just another name for the dark-money group "Michigan Energy First" aka "Michigan Energy Promise", which is trying to sabotage solar energy efforts. They're trying to make personal solar energy generation sound scary, because it cuts into their monopoly revenue. www.bridgemi.com/guest-commentary/opinion-big-utility-companies-want-limit-options-michigan-custo...

TELL EVERYONE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, TO STAY HOME !!!!!!!!

How about inspecting the solar panels that I already installed so I can their electricity? I want to get away from your dirty energy and dirty lies.

another bullshit ad appearing - unwanted - on my timeline - screw them

Even though President Trump had to rebuild our military that Biden and Obama left depleted, by adding 2 1/2 trillion to our national debt, he has put in place ways to repay that 2 1/2 trillion, plus even more of our national debt!!! He done that by creating new trade deals, fair trade deals where we are no longer taken advantaged of, like USMCA, the new trade deal with Japan, South Korea, the new trade deal with China and is working on new trade deals with the EU, India and Great Britain!!! With China alone we had a 450 billion dollar trade deficit and they were stealing trillions worth of intellectual properties, just resolving these problems will add 100's of billions to our economy!!! Our hate spreading fake media don't tell you these things because they don't want you to know just how good Trump is actually doing!!! Wake up and do research on your own!!! #walkaway
