Save-Office Equipment

Office Equipment

  • Turn off computers, printers and other office equipment when you are not using them, especially overnight and on weekends.
  • Use the energy saving or sleep mode on computer monitors to save energy.
  • Choose the smallest computer monitor that meets your needs. Larger monitors require more power.
  • Consider having employees use lap top computers, since they use up to 90% less electricity than standard desktop computers.
    • Use ink jet printers for very low volume printing. They use just 4% of the electricity used by typical laser models.
    • Use a multi-function printer/scan/fax machine, as it will use much less power than the three separate machines combined.
