Personal computers (PCs) are one of the fastest growing electricity loads in business and academic arenas. According to one recent estimate there are about 26,800 PCs and nearly half that number of printers currently used in University of Michigan (U-M) buildings. Although it is difficult to estimate, PC operation probably accounts for over 10 percent of all electricity used by the U-M.
The U-M Utilities and Maintenance Services Department, Energy Management Division, has written and distributed a booklet titled UM Guide to Green Computing: What You Can Do To Conserve Energy On and Off Campus. This information guide highlights some of the advice contained in that booklet.
