Challenges faced

Chafey Joint Union High School District (CJUHSD) is a grade 9-12 school district located in San Bernardino County, California. This rapidly growing district has over 2,000 employees and 25,000 students operating on over 5,000 workstations in an all-Windows environment. With no existing PC power management strategy in place, the district’s computers were often left powered on overnight, wasting a colossal amount of energy and money. The school district was searching for ways to save money and knew that a dedicated PC power management strategy offered a quick return on investment.

A Solution That Worked

CJUHSD initially tested Power Save in Audit Mode on approximately 4,000 workstations. They learned that by configuring Power Save to take action after 45 minutes of inactivity, CJUHSD could save over $100,000 a year which quickly led them to fully enable Power Save and further decrease the inactivity settings to 30 minutes to save even more money. The district reduced their PC energy consumption by over $350,000 in a year, which translated to over $70 per workstation.

Chaffey Joint Union High School District (CJUHSD) located in San Bernardino County, California is a rapidly growing district with over 2,000 employees and 25,000 students operating on over 5,000 workstations in an all-Windows environment.

With no existing computer power management strategy in place, the district’s workstations were often left powered on overnight, wasting a colossal amount of energy and money. The school district was searching for ways to save money and knew that a dedicated computer power management strategy offered a quick return on investment.

The district initially tested Faronics Power Save in Audit Mode on approximately 4,000 workstations. Power Save’s Audit Mode feature enables organizations to determine the quantity of energy consumed as well as the potential for savings without actually starting to manage power.

Within one month CJUHSD saw a significant difference in their electric bills. The district reduced their computer energy consumption by over $350,000 in a year, which translated to over $70 per workstation.

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

By implementing a dedicated computer power management solution, CJUHSD is demonstrating a strong commitment to environmental and fiscal responsibility.
