Get Smart about Energy™


Did you know?
The average desktop PC wastes nearly half of the electricity it consumes as heat.

Using the power management features on your computer can save nearly half a ton of CO2 and more than $60 a year in energy costs.

With a few mouse clicks, your computer can be set to automatically go to “sleep” when it’s not in use.

Did you know?
A new ENERGY STAR compliant computer uses 15 to 25 percent less electricity on average than a standard new computer.

Choose an ENERGY STAR compliant computer the next time you’re in the market for a new PC.

Did you know?
As long as they are plugged in, your computer and other electronic devices continue to use electricity – even when they are turned off or in standby mode.

A computer uses up to 10 watts when it is turned off but still plugged in. You can reduce your electricity bills by as much as 10% by simply unplugging appliances when they are not in use. Plug all your electronics into one power strip so you can easily switch them all off when you leave the room or go to bed.
