Leef PC: Reducing Emissions One Computer at a TimeWritten by Emily Pugliese
In today’s culture computers are powered-on most, if not all, of the day. With over one billion computers currently in use worldwide, this accounts for a large amount of energy. But with recent breakthroughs in more efficient technology, low-power PC components have become available that may help to decrease that footprint. Leef PC, LLC has taken advantage of these new technologies by creating a low-power PC that provides great performance while saving you money and reducing emissions. Leef PC, LLC is an experimental low-power PC computer company, testing the viability of green products that can address future needs and concerns without extra cost or performance cuts. Their PC uses 22% less energy to run than the average desktop computer. This increase in efficiency will save over 230 kg of CO2 per year from entering the atmosphere and around $50 per year from leaving your wallet. In addition, Leef has partnered with us to offset a portion of the emissions related to the manufacturing, transportation and use of their computer systems by supporting our energy efficiency, renewable energy and reforestation projects.
