Organizations can cut PC energy consumption to save significant costs and reduce environmental impact. However, many stakeholders are skeptical about how powering down idle computers will significantly reduce costs. Therefore, a business case may be needed to demonstrate the benefit.

This calculator can be employed to:

  • Consider factors such as energy costs, number of PCs, typical PC and monitor wattage, and the organization's usage patterns.
  • Estimate potential savings.
  • Estimate power savings from laptops as well.

Use this tool to determine what cost savings are possible and to build a business case for a PC power saving plan.

This downloadable tool is associated with the research note, "PC Power Saving Plans Reduce Costs and Environmental Impact."
