When you hear the term “Go Green” many different things come to mind. You may think of things like solar panels and windmills, or perhaps hybrid vehicles and organic foods. Often there are ways to conserve energy and save money around your home or office that have little to no cost, and these conservative methods can pay off huge in the end.
Think of your office’s computer network. The average desktop computer costs about $11.00 a month to power around the clock, 24/7. What if you turned that computer off when you left every Friday? Just turning off one computer each weekend saves an average of $3.00 per month on electricity. How many computers do you have in your office? 10? 20? Even more? You can see how quickly the savings can add up. A small office with 15 computers can save around $45 a month, or $540 a year.
You want to leave your computer on during the week though. Updates, maintenance, virus scans, and other important background tasks run during the weeknights.
Try this out for a month with a handful of computers and you’ll be sure to see a difference.
Go Green, Save Green, Everyone is Happy.
