Cut your PC's energy use by up to 30% with Granola, a free software program launched in January. In an effort to help cut the energy wasted by computers in a sifnificant way, Granola works with x86 platforms on servers, laptops and desktops that run Linux or Windows.
Without affecting performance, this free software can save you up to 30% on your energy usage. By scaling down the power your PC needs when you are reading a website or word processor, it's like "dimmer switch." And yet when you need the full CPU power the software allows more power.
Making more computers energy efficient without slowing down has never been safer or easier to use. Did you know there are over a billion personal computers (PCs) in the world? If each of these computers were to run Granola and reduced their power consumption by only 10%, it would be like taking 7 million cars off the road. Or you can think of it as planting 900 million trees. Or turning off 65 coal power plants.
