Challenges faced

Redlands Unified School District (RUSD) is a California-based school district, serving over 21,000 students. RUSD currently has over 7,000 Windows computers across the district, supported by 75 servers. Like many school districts, RUSD was mandated to cut costs and realize savings wherever possible. The district did not have an existing power management strategy in place, and therefore manually shutdown their computers every night.

A Solution That Worked

As an already satisfied customer of Faronics Deep Freeze (an instant system restore solution) and Faronics Insight (a classroom management solution), RUSD didn’t hesitate to choose Faronics Power Save as their power management solution of choice. The PC energy reducing software is now deployed on over 5,500 computers at RUSD. There are two dedicated servers that manage all Power Save PCs in the district’s office, and the software has been configured to ensure the most efficient savings without any end-user disruption. RUSD has now managed to save over $90,000 in energy costs in a year for their 5,500 computers, and the school district couldn’t be happier.

Energy Management Solution Saves California School District $90,000
by Kelly Batke

When the IT staff at Redlands Unified School District attended a Southern California Edison presentation on energy management, they had no idea how much they would learn.

For schools and other organizations facing shrinking budgets, a dedicated IT energy management solution is an immediate and cost effective way to reduce computer energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

Recognizing the opportunity to save money with a dedicated IT energy management solution, The school quickly invested in Faronics Power Save. Faronics Power Save keeps computers running when users need them, powers them down when they are inactive, and can prove its rapid return-on-investment through energy savings reports.

The district has now managed to save over $90,000 in energy costs in a year for their 5,500 computers, and the school district couldn’t be happier. “Faronics is a great partner for the district. The support we’ve received from Faronics has been excellent. They’ve tirelessly worked with us to help us deploy the product to our needs,” said  Dave Massaro, Technology Services Coordinator.

And thanks to the rebate offered by Southern California Edison, the entire cost of the purchase is covered.
