Computer Power Management Project

Facilities Management plans to install power management software on 2,250 computers around campus. This software establishes uniform power settings, and will help the team track usage throughout the year—allowing the UA to make smarter decisions when it comes to leaving workstation computers on, or turning them off. This one-year pilot project is designed to test the system, and after helping with the initial installation, an undergraduate student employee will continue to monitor the results. The next step is to connect half the workstations on campus to this energy-saving system. This move is expected to trim the university’s carbon footprint by 560,250 pounds every twelve months.
