Fight global warming by installing Local Cooling on your PC

Do you know that an estimated 30 billion kilowatt-hours of energy is wasted every year because people forget to shutdown their computers? If we could improve the efficiency of how we use our PCs we could save $3 billion dollars a year and reduce our CO2 emissions.

Local Cooling is a fairly new software tool that allows you to optimize your computer's energy settings. This will cut your energy bills and reduce the amount of CO2 emissions caused by your PC's electricity consumption.

The program also predicts how many KWh, gallons of oil and trees you saved by optimizing your PC.
By adjusting the power mode settings our advanced algorithms will predict how much you will save based on past PC usage and statistical data. Every time LocalCooling saves power by either turning of your screen, putting your hard drive to sleep when not used or shutting down your PC when you are away your savings stats will start to grow. Download LocalCooling today and optimize your PC's energy efficiency in minutes.
You can download it at Local Cooling.

The project currently has more than 22,579 users. Their ambitious goal is to optimize over 100 million PCs. This would prevent over 300 billion kg of CO2 gas emissions from being released into the atmosphere, equivalent to over 1.8 billion gallons of oil, in just the first year alone.
