Golden Tips on Energy Conservation


Tips for PC users

  1. Set your computers, monitors, printers, copiers and other business equipment to their energy saving feature, and turn them off at the end of the day.
  2. A PC requires 300-500 watts of electricity; three PC’s left running continuously for a day will consume 7.2 - 12 kilowatt hours of energy enough to boost up your power bills.
  3. Screen savers do not save energy so turn off your computer and all its equipment completely when not in use.
  4. Turn off your laser printers when not printing. If possible, switch to ink jet or laser jets printers- they consume 90% less energy than laser printers
  5. Use and encourage others to use e-mail instead of sending memos and faxing documents
  6. Some printers require a minimum of 660 watts to operate, it is wise to use a shared LAN printers instead of individual printers.
