by Kelly Batke

The benefits are an IT power management program may seem obvious to some, but just what is the Total Economic Impact?

In a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Faronics titled “The Total Economic Impact™ Of Faronics Power Save” Faronics was able to determine that organizations who reduce their computer energy waste via an IT power management solution, like Faronics Power Save, can achieve a substantial and rapid return on investment (ROI).

The study is based on the deployment of Power Save on over 8000 computers at BC Hydro Power Authority, a Canadian electric utility giant. They were able to realize a risk–adjusted ROI of 35%, with a payback period of 20 months. Over the next three years they will save an estimated three million kilowatt hours (kWh), valued at over $240,000.

“When an organization as large as BC Hydro can achieve a solid ROI even after implementing their own internal PC power management strategy, I feel confident that organizations everywhere can benefit significantly from the cost and energy savings of Power Save,” said Farid Ali, President & CEO of Faronics.
