August 27th will mark “Power IT Down Day,” an effort to reduce energy consumption across the federal government and its contractors.  Before leaving for the weekend, employees are asked to power down all electronics to cut down on the industry’s collective carbon footprint.

“Participation doubled during last year’s Power IT Down Day, and we hope to reach even more individuals in 2010,” said Citrix U.S. Public Sector VP Tom Simmons. “Because Power IT Down Day falls on a Friday this year, government and industry have the chance to save even more energy – not only on one night, but for the entire weekend. That’s a potential savings of 55 kilowatt hours per person, which can quickly add up to a significant impact on responsible energy consumption.”

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has noted the federal government is the nation’s largest energy user.

HP encourages our employees to exercise healthy energy savings habits, and Power IT Down Day is one way we can help our customers do the same,” said Tom Hempfield, U.S. Federal VP at HP. “Every individual makes a difference.”
