Next Generation of ENERGY STAR Qualified Computers Offers Over One Billion Dollars in Energy Savings

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Within three months of stringent new requirements for ENERGY STAR computers becoming effective, more than 35 manufacturers have demonstrated their commitment to fight climate change by offering products that save energy. With over 500 newly qualified products already on the shelves, there are many options for home and work that will reduce your energy bill while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. If every U.S. household and business replaced old computers with new ENERGY STAR qualified models, we would save more than $1.8 billion in energy costs over the next five years and avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2.7 million cars.
