Verdiem has released the launch version of Edison, an energy monitoring PC application that works on both Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems. Edison is an easy to use app that once downloaded lets you know how much energy you are using on your PC. It is absolutely free and only requires that you provide your email address prior to download.
You can perform numerous functions through the Edison application. You can set different PC usage times: work and non-working PC hours. You can set up different functions to take place during your non-working hours, like powering down your hard drive or putting the PC in power save mode. Once you set your different preferences, Edison will provide you with an estimate of your energy, CO2 and money savings.
If you are unsure of what settings to choose, Edison will provide you with recommendations in order to achieve your desired level of energy savings. At any time, you can change your preferences. Edison can be your solution to being more green without spending money on expensive applications or devices.
