Don’t Google ... Blackle .... and save energy

Blackle is the energy-saving version of Google. Apparently, your monitor saves power by displaying the black screen of Blackle. Check it out ....

How is Blackle saving energy?
Blackle saves energy because the screen is predominantly black. "Image displayed is primarily a function of the user's color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given black (or dark) screen." Roberson et al, 2002

How can you help?
We encourage you to set Blackle as your home page. This way every time you load your Internet browser you will save a little bit of energy. Remember every bit counts! You will also be reminded about the need to save energy each time you see the Blackle page load.
