Your PC Can Save CO2 by Reducing Electricity With Free Tool

CO2 Saver software helps you reduce wasted electricity on your desktop PC...quick, easy...and free!

Find green business solutions
CO2 Saver is a lightweight software program
that manages your computer's power
usage when it's idle,
saving energy and decreasing the demand on your power utility.

Save Computer Power Every Day!

When a computer is running, energy providers supplying power to it are burning fossil fuels and emitting harmful Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. Although CO2 is a normal component of the atmosphere, elevated levels of it are likely to cause future climate change (global warming). Although there are other types of emissions from burning fossil fuels, CO2 makes up over 99.6% of emissions by weight.

So...the less electricity produced, the fewer harmful emissions and greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) are released into the atmosphere.

The green-conscious folks at developed this handy little tool and is giving it away to help reduce CO2 emissions.

  • It's quick to download
  • Windows XP and Vista compatible
  • Works on desktops and laptops
  • Displays savings in US or Metric
  • No spyware or adware...just a helping hand for you and Mother Earth!

In a matter of seconds you can reduce the amount of energy your computer and monitor use when they are idle and prevent extra CO2 emissions from being generated. What's more, CO2 Saver shows you the amount of CO2 you've saved single-handedly, as well as all other CO2 Saver users combined!

Because each computer is different, we currently use averages. CO2 Saver detects the type of computer you're using (for example, desktop vs. laptop) and uses that information to help calculate how much energy it normally uses (and how much the program will save).

In the Options menu under "Computer Details," you have the ability to enter more information about your computer and monitor(s) so this can be taken into account, as power consumption also varies widely across monitor types and sizes. In the future, the developers plan to allow more precise measurements, and they're working on those features now.
