The Cost of Computer Left on Unnecessarily Overnight

Wow. That’s also equal to 14.4 metric tons of carbon dioxide a year. Some 30% of corporate computers are left on overnight says whatcanonepersondo. Perhaps if companies realized how much they’d save, they’d turn them off.

Any good idea–this time, good for the pocket book and good for the earth–takes people doing it on their own and passing the word to their friends and encouraging them to do the same. Then, it builds momentum and a world-scale dent is made.

You gotta start somewhere. Turn your computers off when they’re not in use and save yourself some money at the same time.
