The City of Boston has reduced PC energy use by an average of 44 percent on all computers using Verdiem's Surveyor software. Using Surveyor, the City of Boston is saving an average of 180 kWh of electricity or about $25 per PC annually.
"From our green building requirements to our clean vehicle policies, sustainability is a critical component of the City of Boston's future," said Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino. "Using Verdiem's Surveyor demonstrates the city's commitment to lead by example by reducing energy use and harmful greenhouse gas emissions while saving taxpayer money."
Studies show that PCs and monitors use as much as 14 percent of all power consumed in office environments. By using Verdiem's Surveyor, organizations like the City of Boston can centrally manage the sleep, shut down and wake cycles to eliminate PC power waste and reduce spending on energy.
