Cutting Costs with Green Ideas, Part 2

Energy Efficiency 101

Cutting Energy CostsDid you know: For small to mid-sized businesses, the cost of electrical power has surpassed healthcare, payroll, rent and equipment. When we use less energy, we cut these costs, decrease emissions of CO2 and our reliance on fossil fuels.

  • A Ricoh B/W MFP uses less energy in a typical workweek than a 100-watt light bulb operating for 40 hours.
  • Ricoh MFPs use about the same amount of energy per week as the leading color desktop printers, even with copy, scan, print and faxing capabilities all in one.
  • A fleet of 100 35ppm Ricoh machines can save approximately 11.2 tons of CO2 per year by utilizing Energy Saving Mode.
  • Ricoh’s has developed a special toner for our color MFPs which uses 35% less energy in the manufacturing process and lowers energy use of machine during operation.

Your office can start saving today by manually launching Ricoh MFPs into low power mode.

Just press the Energy Saving Mode button on your control pad when your job is done. You don’t have to worry about interrupting the next user because Ricoh’s Quick Start Up technology allows B/W MFPs to launch from energy saving mode to full operation in 10-15 seconds or less.
