As customers prepared last week to celebrate Halloween with trick-or-treating, scary movies and haunted houses, Cleco reminded them to beware of the “phantom” power that may be creeping throughout their homes and businesses.

Phantom power is a term used to describe electricity used by appliances and electronics that are left plugged in when they are turned off or not being used. These items, on average, drain electricity 24/7 and account for over $100 of a home’s energy bill each year. Examples are cell phone chargers, power tools, televisions, toasters, coffee makers, computers, printers and game consoles.

“We often forget about phantom power, but the average home or business has several appliances and electronics using energy when they are left plugged in, even though they may be turned off,” said Hammad Chaudhry, Cleco energy efficiency manager. “This is a reminder to unplug them when they are not being used.”

Bad for business

Bad for business

Most of us work for a small business, know someone that does or have relatives that are employed by one. The government defines a small business as 100 employees or less. If you own a store with no parking or you’re not open but three days a week this could be bad for business.

If your employees are rude to your customers or your store is dirty this could hurt your business. If your main supplier goes on strike or your store is blown away by a tornado, this will surely hurt business.

With a service business, if you can’t get there on time or you’re not friendly to customers this can affect sales. If you’re not skilled at what you’re doing or a one day job takes you four days to accomplish this will eventually cost you customers.

Beehive Buzz:

Tom, a beekeeper, sent the question to AHA, “Just a quick note while it’s on my mind... there have been several online topics about bottling, labeling and selling honey. The laws have changed several times in the recent past with the “cottage laws” but there is still questions to include tax liability, if any. I am sure that this would be of interest to several of our local beekeepers.”

AHA consulted with a beekeeper and an attorney in Lake Charles. This lawyer shared these comments, “If you sell at a Farmer’s market or directly off the farm

Feeding quality hay can reduce waste

Cattle producers can limit the amount of time cattle feed on hay without any negative effects if the hay has good nutritional quality, an LSU AgCenter forage specialist said at an AgCenter beef and forage field day on Sept. 19.

Wink Alison said cattle waste as much as 50% of hay if it’s placed on the ground without controlling for trampling. He recommended using a hay rack to reduce damage and said using cone racks result in less waste.
