County sited for saving energy
Placeholder Image
Liberty County recently joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star low carbon IT campaign by enabling the power management, or sleep mode, on computers and monitors.
Power management enables computers and monitors to go into a low-power sleep mode after a period of inactivity.
Power management has the potential to save up to $50 per computer annually, according to a news release.
“EPA is pleased to recognize Liberty County as a participant in the Energy Star low carbon IT campaign,” said program manager Steve Ryan. “By taking this simple pledge, we can make a substantial difference in the fight against global warming. Energy Star’s power management tools offer a cost-effective way to save energy, money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
