Power Vampires

Customers are at a loss sometimes what constitutes the high energy consumption on the bills they receive and what appliances might be consuming all this power. One may be tempted to attribute it to ghosts or some power sucking devices. In electrical enginering, there is a phenomenom called Vampire power. Vampire power is a not-so-common term in electrical engineering and very alien to most

electricity consumers. Appliances that utilises this type of power are termed as Power vampires or energy vampires. These energy vampires live with us and feed on our bills. This could be one of the reasons customers notice high energy consumption recorded on their bills. 

In a bid to give a better explanation to this issue, a whatsapp-like chat has been created to help consumers. In the whatsapp conversation, Kwame discusses his high bills with his friend. Satisfy your curiousity about these power vampires by following the chat........(sorry for the colloquial language in the chat)
