PC Power Management Saves California School District $350,000 Per Year

SAN RAMON, CA, June 15th, 2010 — Faronics, global leader in computer power management and cost reducing IT solutions, announced today that Chaffey Joint Union High School District (CJUHSD) is now saving $350,000 a year by shutting down their inactive PCs with Faronics Power Save. The California based school district joined more than 150 educational institutions in the state when it deployed Power Save’s award winning computer energy management technology on over 4800 workstations. Faronics Power Save provides organizations with centralized computer energy management, allowing organizations to continuously maximize their savings by powering IT down when inactive.

With over 2,000 employees and 25,000 students, CJUHSD is one of the largest school districts in the state of California. With no previous PC power management strategy in place, the district’s computers were often left powered on overnight, wasting a colossal amount of energy and money. For schools facing shrinking budgets, a dedicated PC power management solution is one of the most immediate and cost effective ways to reduce computer energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Like many organizations interested in using a PC power management solution, CJUHSD was concerned with power management actions taking place at inopportune times, such as when students are working on their assignments and projects. Power Save’s intelligence and ability to detect critical applications and exempt them from Power Management policies made sure no undesired actions ever occurred.

“I am extremely impressed by the evolution of Power Save. The latest version(s) include even more savings reports and features that offered further configuration flexibility from when we first installed it,” said CJUHSD Network Specialist David Patzold.

Power Save works by analyzing CPU, application activity, disk, keyboard, network, and mouse status before taking power management actions, and delivers enterprise-wide desktop computer energy management. Power Save is non-disruptive, integrates seamlessly with existing IT maintenance routines, and provides organizations with centralized, granular and cross platform PC power management, savings reports, and a rapid proven ROI.

Fifteen utility companies in California currently offer rebates up to 100% of the purchase and deployment costs of Faronics’ PC power management solution. The fast implementation and quick ROI payback enable companies to leverage Power Save to immediately deliver true business value.
