I asked my son who is an Electrician if lamps and other electrical appliances use electricity when not in use. He said anything that has a clock that runs or has a light that stays lit when off uses a little bit of electricity, but not much. He said lamps or anything else that does not have a light or clock does NOT use any electricity when not on. The electricity has nowhere to go, so it isn’t drawn from the outlet.
I thought you all might want to know this.
