Power Management

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Angus College of Further Education,

Thousands of pounds are spent on electricity for PC's each year. I
would like to know;

a) How many PC's are in the College?
b) Do you use a software tool for Power Management of these PC's.
If you do use a software tool, what is it and what is the annual
cost of support & maintenance?
c) Who is responsible for paying electricity bills for the
College (Name and Role)?
d) Does that College have a Green IT policy for reduction of
carbon emissions?

Yours faithfully,

Martin McKenna
