Darkoogle(黑色Google)九月 3, 2007
A typical white screen uses around 74 watts of electricity.A black version of the same screen uses around 59 watts – so saving around 15 watts per hour.
A saving of 15 watts isn’t huge on it’s own – you couldn’t even run a household lightbulb with it.
However, Google gets around 200 million hits a day. Multiply our modest 15 watt saving by 200 million and things start to get interesting.
The idea was first suggested in a blog entry in January which estimated that a “black Google” could save 750 megawatt-hours ayear.
To save the most energy, it is advisable to set your browser’s homepage to Darkoogle and email friends and family about it so they canall help together to save energy.
