Companies frequently come to us with questions about PC Power Management best practices, compelled by rising electricity prices and a growing concern for the impact energy consumption has on the environment

New Star Energy Services continues its commitment to energy conservation issues with the addition of an FAQ product to its website that addresses PC Power Management best practices and recommendations.

New Star Energy Services aims to increase implementation of PC Power Management and expand deployment of energy-efficient PCs and servers. The FAQ tool is an additional resource for New Star Energy Services' clients and the IT community at large. Queries range from general best practice recommendations to the estimated cost savings of a centralized power management policy.

"Companies frequently come to us with questions about PC Power Management best practices, compelled by rising electricity prices and a growing concern for the impact energy consumption has on the environment," says New Star Energy Services' Founder and President Jason Smithwick. "We decided to develop an FAQ tool that alleviates confusion on the topic and points people to resources that can further answer their questions about power management software selection, rebates and ROI calculators, for example."

Cost savings as a result of PC Power Management can be significant. According to a March 2009 Gartner report, businesses that implement PC Power Management can expect a positive ROI within 18 months.

"Our new FAQ tool has opened eyes. Many companies hadn't realized that bottom-line cost savings were so close at hand," says Peter Taylor, New Star Energy Services' Vice President of Consulting Services.

As the New Star Energy Services FAQ tool reveals, ENERGY STAR estimates electricity savings per PC are roughly 50% or $25-75 per year, based on a reduction of approximately 200 KWH per computer per year. Cost savings are driven by dropping computers into a reduced power state for an average of 15 hours a day, without impacting business readiness or compromising automated IT maintenance processes.

The FAQ tool also encourages interested parties to take advantage of New Star Energy Services' free vendor evaluation trials. Through its IT Power Management division, New Star Energy Services has partnered with Faronics and Sentilla and is now a reseller of Faronics Power Save and Sentilla Energy Manager for Data Centers.
