Power Management

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Reid Kerr College,

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

Judith Paxton, Reid Kerr College

Thank you for your request.
I am currently off sick - a broken ankle - but have forwarded your request to staff in the college who will collate the information you require and forward it to me.
Please bear with me if there is a bit of a delay.
Judith Paxton

Dear Reid Kerr College,

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? Around 1900 PCs
b) Do you use a software tool for Power Management of these PC's. Yes
If you do use a software tool, what is it and what is the annual
cost of support & maintenance? We use features for scripting with Active Directory. There is no additional cost.
c) Who is responsible for paying electricity bills for the
College (Name and Role)? Authorised by the Facilities Manager
d) Does that College have a Green IT policy for reduction of
carbon emissions? No separate Green IT policy, but our IT strategy has objectives to improve sustainability. This involves reducing energy consumption (and hence carbon emissions) and sustainable disposal of IT equipment.

Yours faithfully,

Martin McKenna
