Power management features are important for saving energy and are an easy way to reduce carbon emissions through unnecessary use of electricity.

Energy efficient Energy Star compliant photocopiers provide a significant step towards reducing the environmental impact of office photocopiers. Such machines come standard with an “energy saving” mode to automatically or manually assume a low power state. This feature alone can reduce the energy needed in periods of low activity by over 60%.

When not being used, look to turn off the copier at night and perhaps turn the energy save on at lunchtime or between periods of extended use. Remember most printers consume a significant amount of energy, even when they’re not actively printing.
