Greener computers for Penrith Council

PENRITH City Council has introduced environmentally friendly computers thanks to an  agreement between ACER Computer Australia & Dataflex Pty Ltd (Acer Channel Partner).

ACER and Dataflex recently supplied Penrith City Council with 160 new computers and will plant 160 trees to offset their carbon emissions.

These trees were planted at Ellison Reserve in Werrington by Emu Plains Pubic School students and staff from Council's City Parks Department.

The trees are being donated by Dataflex Pty Ltd as a part of its initiative in conjunction with Hawkesbury Community Nursery.

The new Veriton L4620G range of Acer's L-series desktop computers use half the power of conventional personal computers (135W compared to 300W of power) which not only reduces carbon emissions but also cuts energy costs significantly.

Penrith Mayor, Mark Davies said the agreement between ACER & Dataflex continues to deliver sustainable benefits for staff, for Council and for the environment.

"The new computers are faster, 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.
