It is a wonderful thing when going green can save you money, especially if there are no costs involved. Reducing power consumption is a great way to do just that.
One of the easiest ways to save power is to configure the power settings of your computer. By putting the computer to sleep when not in use, it can save quite a bit on the power bill.
The Edison software provides an incredibly simple way to control when to shut down monitors, hard drives and put the entire computer to sleep. As you move a single slider from “Save Less” towards “Save More”, a chart updates the annual savings in money, energy and CO2 for that setting.
Edison also allows for your work day schedule to be set to have different power schemes running during work and at night.
This quick download could save $16 a computer per year in power consumption. For a real estate agent with several computers at home, this could be a noticeable savings. For the real estate broker with dozens of computers in the office, this could save hundreds.
