For 40 years, Earth Day has helped us all realize that
simple acts can make a big difference in using our resources more
wisely! Saving energy is something we can all do, and it doesn’t require a lot of effort to make a difference. Which got us thinking…
We all know that the federal government is grappling with significant energy issues – it is not only the U.S. economy’s largest consumer of energy but is also its biggest buyer of computer equipment.
So just imagine the energy savings that could be realized if everyone who works for the government did one thing differently each day to save energy. Turning your computer into sleep mode when not in use, unplugging your cell phone once it has charged, or just turning off the lights when you leave a meeting.
What are you doing for Earth Day this year?
If you are ready to make a difference you can also sign-up to join the VMware Government Energy Challenge today.
Based on the simple premise of making a difference – one kilowatt at a time, the VMware Government Energy Challenge encourages government employees to join the VMware Federal team in committing to saving more energy in the workplace every day during the 30 days leading up to Earth Day on April 22.
