Vampire energy

I recently had the power company come out and do an energy usage utilization review on my house and suggest ways that what's her name and I can lower our power bill.

Some of the techniques were what you would expect, raise the AC thermostat and lower the heat temp, double pane windows, fresh weather stripping etc. 

I expected and understood all of those things but you could have knocked me over with a feather when they mentioned the next way to lower our usage was to eliminate "Vampire energy usage"

What the hell? Since when were vampires hooked into the power grid? I thought the undead drank blood? Is there a Bill Compton or Sookie sucking on my meter box at night when all is quiet or lapping watts out of my very expensive CFB's (Compact florescent bulbs) the twisty kind.

How come there has never been any mention of vampires feeding off the power grid in all of the chronicling of the Nosferatu from elder times to the present day? Well I wonder when the change from blood to kilowatts occurred and how the transformation took place? 

I do know one thing! i am going to be keeping a VERY close eye on things around my house from now on and will be paying attention when the dogs start acting agitated! Everyone knows that dogs can sense the undead!

I wonder how I will be able to kill these power sucking Vampires? Maybe "Grounding" them?

Open to suggestions on how to decrease my "vampire energy usage"
