    Offices Waste Enough Energy To Roast 4.4 Million Turkeys
    Canon
    is asking workers to shut down equipment before heading out on holiday,
    to save 43.6 million kilowatts of electricity.Before you leave for a
    long holiday weekend, turn off those computers, printers and fax
    machines.That’s the warning coming from the U.K. division of Canon,
    which just completed a study showing that office equipment left running
    over a 10-day holiday break wastes 43.6 million kilowatts of
    electricity. That’s enough power to roast 4.4 million turkeys.
    Seriously.”It’s clear that some equipment needs to be left on over the
    Christmas period for security reasons, but these amazing figures show
    that businesses that don’t turn off their PCs and printers are
    literally throwing money away, as well as damaging the environment,
    over the festive period,” said David Smith, a spokesman for Canon UK.
    “We have only looked at office equipment that is left in standby mode,
    so imagine how much higher these figures could be if devices are left
    completely on.”The study, which focused on companies in the U.K.,
    showed that 90% of multifunctional printers are left on over the
    holiday break; 60% of laser printers; 50% of PCs, and 100% of fax
    machines.How can you lower your energy bill?Canon recommends that users
    switch PCs off completely, not just log off. Also, power down office
    peripherals, don’t just let them go into standby mode, and don’t forget
    to turn off the lights.
