Are you ready for your next opportunity to #Do1ThingENERGYSTAR?

Are you ready for your next opportunity to #Do1ThingENERGYSTAR? Here’s this week’s challenge: use the power management settings on your home or work computer. You could save up to $90 a year AND help protect the climate.

If you’re not sure how, ENERGY STAR is offering this useful how-to guide.

Just click on the operating system that you use, and follow the instructions. Your computer will enter a low-power mode automatically after a period of inactivity and “awaken” in seconds when you wiggle your mouse or touch your keyboard.

This could be the easiest $90 you ever saved. Find out more about ENERGY STAR at www.energystar.gov, and join the conversation online with #Do1ThingENERGYSTAR.
