    Greener Computing Saves USPS $2.25M
    The
    U.S. Postal Service says it saved more than $2.25 million in the last
    fiscal year due to greener computing initiatives such as server
    consolidation and recycling ink cartridges.
    Over the past three
    years, USPS eliminated some 1,600 servers and reduced hardware
    maintenance costs by $2 million. The postal service has also converted
    40 percent of its workstations to power-saving monitors and
    energy-efficient units. The move has earned it back more than $250,000
    from the power companies, according to the USPS.

    As part of the
    Print and Imaging Environment initiative, USPS IT reduced the number of
    printers used and decreased the number of pages printed by switching
    the default printer setting to double-sided printing.The postal service
    also established a recycling program for ink and toner cartridges.
    Recycled wastepaper, cardboard, cans, and other materials generated $12
    million in the last fiscal year – an increase of more than 40 percent
    from the previous year.Last year the USPS launched a year-long energy
    conservation campaign designed to reduce energy use 30 percent by 2015.
    It is also aiming to replace 90 percent of its delivery fleet, or
    195,000 vehicles, with non-petroleum fueled vehicles
