Faronics, global provider of power reduction software and cost reducing IT solutions, is pleased to announce the results of a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Faronics titled “The Total Economic ImpactT Of Faronics Power Save.” The Total Economic Impact (TEI) study verified that organizations who reduce their computer energy waste via Faronics Power Save can achieve a substantial and rapid return on investment (ROI). TEI not only measures costs and cost reduction (areas that are typically accounted for within IT) but also weighs the enabling value of a technology in increasing the effectiveness of overall business processes.
Forrester’s study is based on the deployment of Power Save on over 8000 computers at BC Hydro Power Authority, an electric utility generating between 43,000 and 54,000 Gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity and serving 1.8 million customers in British Columbia. BC Hydro was 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.
