Silverlight plug-in), built-in energy auditing capability and

$350,000 in energy costs annually and prevent nearly 9,000 tons of CO2
emissions the equivalent of planting 1,845 acres of trees or taking
1,490 cars off the road, according to government estimates. Industry
estimates cite that PC power management can reduce an organizations
overall annual energy consumption up to 15 percent.


Other service features include security roles that enable individuals

ability to schedule complete PC shut downs, hibernations or wake-up
events based on work schedules and maintenance. The company noted
PwrSmart Service is compliant with the U.S. EPAs Energy Star
requirements for PC power management solutions.


PwrSmart Service is one of the few products, IT or otherwise, that
reduces hard costs immediately without requiring any up-front
investment or long-term contract, said Tom Diamond, president of New
Boundary Technologies. Organizations can pay as they go with PwrSmart
Service and start centrally controlling hundreds to thousands of PCs
from a simple browser-based application that generates energy savings
from day one. The enormous savings generated through PwrSmart Service
can easily fund other green initiatives within organizations.
