Microsoft has a special section of their website dedicated to fostering environmental sustainability. To that end, they have released a product called Edison PC Power Management software. The application will work on XP and Windows Vista. According to the Microsoft Environment website features include:

  • Scheduling. Identify work and non-work schedules to optimize power schemes based on when your PC is in use or on standby.
  • Settings. Choose from among several options for power savings and settings.
  • Estimated Savings Reports. Find information that shows how PC power settings correlate to money, kWh and CO2 savings.
  • Intuitive User Interface. Drag easy-to-use sliding bars to choose settings and instantly see the power and monetary savings. Clearly marked tabs make the interface easy to navigate.

So… if you want to reduce your carbon footprint in 2009, check this out. I know I will.
