Leaving PCs on overnight costs firms billions a year

Posted on Sunday, March 29 2009 @ 19:26:14 CEST by


One way companies can cut costs during this recession is by making sure all computers and electronic devices are turned off at night. According to a report by energy-management software company 1E, US firms are wasting $2.8 billion a year on power for unused computers. A large company with 10,000 PCs could save over $260,000 a year by shutting down PCs at night, just enough for a small bonus
About half of 108 million office PCs in the USA are not properly shut down at night, says the 2009 PC Energy Report, produced by 1E, an energy-management software company, and the non-profit Alliance to Save Energy. The report analyzed workplace PC power consumption in the USA, United Kingdom and Germany.

Wastefulness does not just affect a company's bottom line, it creates environmental concerns, the report says. If the world's 1 billion PCs were powered down just one night, it would save enough energy to light the Empire State Building — inside and out — for over 30 years, it says.
