Wanna Save money on your Electric Bill?  Turn off your computer at night!   –  We did a little test in our Lansdale office. We used a “KILL-A-WATT” meter to measure how much electricity is used from a single PC in a 24-hour period in two scenarios.  For scenario 1 (Day 1) – We let the computer run all night. For scenario 2 (Day 2) – We turned the computer off at the end of the work day.

The results?   Almost 50% reduction in electricity consumption.

 Here is the breakdown in $$:

1.1   Kilowatt Hour per day

31 Kilowatt Hour per month

372 Kilowatt Hour per year

For our Utility, we save $90 per year by turning off a single computer at night.
