Go Green! Power Saving Tips

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

  1. Look for the Energy Star certification when purchasing new computer systems or other electronic devices.

  2. If you have an older CRT monitor, consider upgrading to an LCD. An LCD uses about 1/3 of the power (and causes less eyestrain to boot).

  3. Turn off the screen saver. Most monitors no longer are in danger of having images burned into them, and screen savers actually use up monitor power.

  4. If you're away from your computer or other devices for a long period of time (like, while on vacation), consider unplugging them completely.

  5. Enable any power-saving features on your computers, monitors, and peripherals such as printers.

  6. Turn down your screen brightness. The brighter your screen, the more power it uses.
