Copiers are the most energy-intensive type of office equipment because they
sit idle for long periods of time.
Earning the ENERGY STAR
- Copiers that have earned the ENERGY STAR “sleep” or power down when not in
use, and use 40% less electricity compared to standard models.
- ENERGY STAR qualified high-speed copiers may feature duplexing units that
automatically make double-sided copies, reducing paper costs by about $60 a
month. Using less paper also saves energy because it takes 10 times more energy
to manufacture a piece of paper than it does to copy an image onto it.
- Businesses that use ENERGY STAR enabled office equipment may realize
additional savings on air conditioning and maintenance.
Remember, saving energy prevents pollution.
Because most copiers are left on 10 hours a day, power management features
are important for saving energy and an easy way to reduce air pollution. Learn
