energy-efficient office equipment
11% of all
commercial electric usage is consumed by office equipment including
computers, monitors, printers, scanners and fax machines! Because
many people leave their computers on all day and even over the
weekends, it is important to consider ways to reduce this energy
consumption that creates air pollution.
If you are about
to purchase office equipment, look for the Energy Star label on
these products that will help to save you money and reduce wasted
energy. Energy Star enabled office equipment generates less heat, so
you may also realize savings on air conditioning and maintenance.
Over its lifetime, Energy Star qualified equipment in a single home
office can save enough electricity to light an entire home for more
than two years. You can see that this can translate into a
significant savings across the College!
