Save Big on Electricity

Cut electric bills by 80% with Green Technology


Challenge

The Philippines has one of the highest electricity rates in Asia. Yet companies continue operating with power-guzzling, heat-emitting ATX PCs that consume 225W per unit and require heavy air-con use to keep the computers cool. 

As the maths will show, companies with large numbers of ATX workstations are squandering valuable capital on energy bills every day they open for business. Their overheads can only climb higher as electricity rates rise further.

Based on Meralco’s App Calculator, a typical office with 50 ATXs running 10 hours a day, 6 days a week and 4 weeks a month will spend as much as P319,140 a year just on their workstations. Since Meralco’s Calculator is based on 2010 rates, an office’s IT power bill is likely a lot higher.

Then factor in the cost of using air-conditioning, lights and other electrical and IT devices, including servers, commonly found in an office. It all adds up to a heavy burden for business owners.

The bottomline: Business must stop the financial bleeding by finding energy efficient workstation solutions to power their office network without compromising computing power. Money saved from out-of-control utility bills can be ploughed back to grow the business.

Solution

Our Green Technology Mini ITX PC consumes only 30W of energy on the basic unit, rising to 80W to deliver more computing power, while our Servers consume about 80W.

Big on energy efficiency and low on heat emission, the Mini ITX is a high performance and reliable workstation that does not require heavy air-conditioning to cool the units, which have been designed for better heat dissipation.

Equipped with Turbo Charge and other state-of-the-art technologies, our Mini ITX delivers stunning graphics, fast processor speeds and humidity protection for greater durability even with heavy usage. 

Our energy-efficient PC and Server solutions are ideal for SMBs, enterprise, educational institutions, hotels, hospitals and users with large computing needs that are under pressure from the continued escalation of their energy bills

Green Servers

With servers, a company can save money in two ways:
    •    Using energy-efficient servers with an actual power use of 80W compared to the standard 350W
    •    Using the latest technology to shift from outdated and inefficient multiple silo server arrangement to consolidating apps and operating systems on a single server
