Dell expects to save enough energy to power more than 4,000 average American homes for one year
Dell expects to save an estimated $5.8 million a year as a result of power-saving initiatives and building upgrades in its facilities worldwide. The company, which sources more than 25 percent of its global energy needs from renewable sources, is also piloting solar projects on select campuses to incorporate even more renewable energy in its operations.These, along with Dell’s other environmental initiatives, are indicative of Dell’s long-standing commitment to sustainability.
By the end of 2009, Dell expects to cut its global power use by around 48 million kilowatt hours per year, enough energy to power more than 4,000 average American homes for one year. It will accomplish this through a combination of building upgrades, power management strategies and IT solutions.
