Shut down computer monitors during off hours. The average monitor uses 55 watts per hour. If the average off time was ten hours then: That would be 550 watts a day, 17050 watts a month, 200,750 watts a year that is wasted. If you time that by $.13 per Kwh, that is $26.10 per monitor a year. That is a lot of money throughout the US. Just on my base alone we can save $17829.82 a year.
