Many of the 7000 flat screen monitors at CPCC consume 20 watts while in the “ON” mode. An EASY programming change to put them to sleep can result in each monitor being “OFF” approximately 5500 hours per year (nights, weekends, holidays and school breaks). The electrical cost avoidance from 0.8 million fewer kWh being consumed because 7000 monitors are in sleep mode is over $50,000.
Go to the “START’ icon in the lower left corner of your screen and find “CONTROL PANEL,” then “POWER OPTIONS” then “WHEN TO TURN OF DISPLAY.” Select the minutes of inactivity that work for you and SAVE your changes!
