(Question No. 1012)

Mr Fletcher asked the Minister representing the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, in writing, on the 10 May 2012:

Further to the answer to question in writing No. 741 (House Hansard, 8 May 2012, page 52) how much power is consumed by a standard fixed line telephone (that does not require a separate power source).

Mr Albanese: The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

A report from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering indicates the power dissipated from a standard corded telephone, with little functionality other than making and receiving calls, would be less than 0.5Watts, equating to less than 0.0005 Kilowatts per hour.
