The program is offered by Resource Solutions Group, a CLEAResult company, and is designed to provide energy savings and cash rebates for commercial businesses. The Desktop Power Management Rebate Program offers rebates of $12 per desktop computer for the installation of enterprise-level power management software for qualifying commercial customers in the Illinois Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) electric delivery service territory.
Desktop Power Management solutions, such as CA ecoDesktop, are add-on software designed to enforce power savings on networked computers to reduce wasted energy use. In addition to the immediate savings offered through the rebate program, IT managers may see sustainable energy savings for their company as most power management solutions have robust usage monitoring and reporting features to show overhead savings and projections over a period of time.
For example, a company installing power management software, such as CA ecoDesktop, on 1,000 networked desktops would be eligible for $12,000 in rebates to offset the software purchase price. Based on the Resource Solutions Group’s estimated annual electrical savings of 291,700 kWh, the company might continue saving up to approximately $23,336 per year through reduced annual energy costs.
To participate in the program, customers must be commercial accountholders or tenants in the Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) electric delivery service territory. There is no required minimum number of desktops to participate in this program and the benefits can quickly add up to large savings. With Instant Discounts, customers in effect receive their rebates immediately upon installation, rather than needing to complete a separate rebate application process.
“Organizations of all kinds are looking for ways to reduce the energy consumption associated with their use of information technology,” said Terrence Clark, general manager, Energy and Sustainability solutions, CA Technologies. “We appreciate Resource Solutions Group’s recognition of CA ecoDesktop as a qualified product and we look forward to working with Resource Solutions Group and qualified ComEd customers to support energy and sustainability initiatives in the state of Illinois.”
