New Boundary Technologies' PC Power Management Approved for Manitoba Hydro Incentive Program
Canadian Utility Offers Rebate to Customers Who Purchase PwrSmart®
MINNEAPOLIS – Nov. 16, 2010 – New Boundary TechnologiesÒ today announced that Manitoba Hydro, a major Canadian energy utility, has approved New Boundary Technologies’ PwrSmart PC power management software for use in its Commercial Network Energy Management Program. The program seeks to meet energy needs by making existing energy sources more efficient and driving consumers to reduce unnecessary personal computer energy use. Manitoba Hydro will provide rebates to Manitoba customers, covering 100 percent of the cost for each PwrSmart software license installed.
“After reviewing the power management functionality of PwrSmart from New Boundary Technologies, we were pleased to add the software to our Commercial Network Energy Management Program,” said Cheryl Elnor of Manitoba Hydro. “We believe all our customers should be rewarded for working with us to save energy, and PwrSmart makes it easy for them to have a real impact on energy consumption in our province.”
PwrSmart software is a simple, automated PC power management solution that centrally controls PC power settings and energy consumption. PwrSmart can help reduce a company’s overall energy consumption by 15 percent, lowering environmental impact and contributing to sustainability initiatives.
“We are excited to provide Manitoba Hydro customers with the energy-saving capabilities of our PwrSmart software,” said Tom Diamond, president of New Boundary Technologies. “With PwrSmart, businesses can take steps to protect the environment by proactively managing PC power consumption while also cutting energy costs. In addition, the return-on-investment is even greater for Manitoba Hydro customers because the software cost is subsidized by the utility.”
New Boundary Technologies’ Canadian sales partner,2G Technology, will manage PwrSmart sales to Manitoba Hydro customers as part of the Commercial Network Energy Management Program.
