Smaller, faster, greener computers for Penrith City Council


Tree-planting-001

A number of Council employees are now using environmentally friendly computers thanks to an ongoing agreement with Dataflex, an authorised supplier of ‘Green’ Acer computers.

The new Acer Veriton L4610 computers use half the power of conventional desktop computers (135W compared to 300W of power) which not only reduces carbon emissions but also significantly cuts energy costs.

Dataflex has supplied Penrith City Council with 160 of these computers and will plant 160 trees to offset their carbon emissions. The trees are donated by Dataflex, in partnership with Greening Australia, and will be planted at Luddenham Primary School on Monday April 2 2012.
Penrith City Mayor Greg Davies said the agreement with Dataflex, which is now in its third year, continues to deliver benefits to Council, to staff and the environment.

“The new computers are much smaller and take up less room, which allows staff to work more comfortably at their desks. They are also significantly faster, increasing processing times and productivity across the organisation,” Councillor Davies said.
“Council is passionate about the environment and has adopted a number of sustainable business practices across the organisation. To further reduce our carbon footprint, Council will refurbish our old computers for distribution to Third World Countries or re-use the working spare parts.”
