In the press this weekend it was announced that SEPA had been leaving 400 PC's on overnight, wasting around 90,000 kwh per year, the equivalent of 280 hours of flying a jet plane. In order to combat this they have now introduced a Power Management software product. As you are a Public Sector body in Scotland I would like to know;
How many PC's do you have in your organization?
Do you use a Power Management software product (not the operating system: this is inefficient)?
Contact details for the person responsible for Green issues / carbon reduction commitments?
Dear Angus College of Further Education,
By law, you are required to have responded to my FOI request promptly and within 20 days of the original inquiry. I await the requested information, at your earliest convenience.
Sorry for the delay in dealing with your request, we are investigating
Here is the answer to your questions
How many PC's do you have in your organization? 1133 PCs and 238 laptops
Do you use a Power Management software product (not the operating system:
this is inefficient)?
We impose power management through the normal Windows Group Policy. This
comes at no extra charge with our Windows licences
