Replacing equipment and changing some habits can make a big difference to your energy usage and wallet, says Robert Mitchell in Computer World. After finding out that the computing equipment in his home office last year consumed 803 kilowatt-hours of power and directly resulted in the emission of 889 lbs of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, Mitchell asked himself a question: could he save money and help save the planet by reducing his energy use without compromising his business? And then he set out to eliminate every wasted watt of energy, and wasted dollar, he could find in his office setup. Well worth a browse.
