BC Hydro is an organization with extensive expertise in the field of electricity conservation and energy economics. BC Hydro is a commercial Crown corporation owned by the Province of British Columbia, the largest electric utility in British Columbia, and one of North America’s leading providers of renewable energy.

A Solution That Worked

In April 2009, Faronics commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Power Save. This study illustrates the financial impact of deploying Power Save PC power management software for 8,068 (as of early December 2009) PCs at BC Hydro. In conducting in-depth interviews with an existing Faronics enterprise customer, Forrester found that the Power Save product helped the company achieve significant savings on energy costs, beyond the efficiency savings that BC Hydro had already realized prior to installing Power Save.

The benefits are an IT power management program may seem obvious to some, but just what is the Total Economic Impact?

In a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Faronics titled “The Total Economic Impact™ Of Faronics Power Save” Faronics was able to determine that organizations who reduce their computer energy waste via an IT power management solution, like Faronics Power Save, can achieve a substantial and rapid return on investment (ROI).

The study is based on the deployment of Power Save on over 8000 computers at BC Hydro Power Authority, a Canadian electric utility giant. They were 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.

“When an organization as large as BC Hydro can achieve a solid ROI even after implementing their own internal PC power management strategy, I feel confident that organizations everywhere can benefit significantly from the cost and energy savings of Power Save,” said Farid Ali, President & CEO of Faronics.
