SAN RAMON, CA, September 30th, 2011 — Faronics, a global leader in PC power management software, has received a 2010 Energy Savings award from Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) for its innovative solution that allow end users to manage PC energy consumption and pare costs.
Faronics Power Save software significantly reduces workstation power usage for an average savings of $50 per machine annually without interrupting day-to-day operations by determining when computers are inactive so that they can be powered down.
Faronics earned top honors from PG&E in the schools market category for saving its education customers more than 1.3 million kilowatt hours of electricity last year.
PG&E is one of the nation’s power utilities offering rebates to businesses or institutions that install Faronics Power Save and continue to employ the software for at least five years. Power Save reports on workstation savings year over year demonstrating unbelievable ROI.
“Improperly managed computers during downtime are a financial drain and impact the environment negatively,” said Kerry J. Plowman, Product Manager for Power Save. “Power Save is a strategic investment that pays for itself in one year or less since it allows computers to be configured to shut down, stand by or hibernate based upon CPU usage, disk, network, or application activity.”
Power Save’s intelligent energy management capabilities not only reduce power consumption, but generate detailed reports that show savings gained in both kilowatt hours and dollars. The customizable software saves open documents before powering down, allows workstations to be centrally managed via Faronics Core, and works with both Windows and Mac operating systems.
