Energy Star Low Carbon IT Campaign

Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR Low Carbon IT Campaign by enabling the power management, or sleep mode, on the Fiscal Office’s computers and monitors. This simple step will help reduce the nation's growing demand for electricity, save organizations money and help fight global warming.

"We are proud to be part of this effort to reduce the carbon footprint of our IT operations,” said Fiscal Officer Scalise. "The efficient use of computers and monitors is not just good for our bottom line; it's good for the environment."

"EPA is pleased to recognize the Summit County Fiscal Office as a participant in the ENERGY STAR Low Carbon IT Campaign," said ENERGY STAR Program Manager Steve Ryan. "By taking this simple pledge, we can make a substantial difference in the fight against global warming. ENERGY STAR's power management tools offer a cost-effective way to save energy, money, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

Power management enables computers and monitors to go into a low-power sleep mode after a period of inactivity. Power management has the potential to save up to $50 per computer annually.

ENERGY STAR was introduced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efficiency. Today, ENERGY STAR offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money and help protect the environment for future generations. Fiscal Officer Scalise is very proud that her office is part of more than 12,000 organizations that are ENERGY STAR partners.
