Leaving Computers On Over Holiday Weekend Costs Big Bucks
U.S. companies could have saved up to $46 million over the three-day Independence Day weekend, according to a report produced by 1E and the Alliance to Save Energy.
The report says if the 104 million workers who use PCs at work left them on for the long weekend, they would have contributed 474 million pounds of CO2 to the atmosphere.
Enforcing corporate power policies and energy savings schemes like “sleep” and “hibernate” modes are some ways 1E’s power management software is designed to help companies reduce their energy costs and improve their environmental impact.
While data centers have become the darlings of the green IT movement, many IT departments haven’t yet looked at the rest of the company’s IT equipment.
