Verdiem’s Edison is a free energy-monitoring application for eco-conscious consumers. You can use it to more actively control your PC’s energy consumption — and subsequently your household’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Made for Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista PC users, Verdiem’s Edison enhances the operating systems’ existing power settings with increased overall energy savings and provides a consumer-friendly user interface that makes it easy to set up and manage. Endorsed by Microsoft and Climate Savers, Verdiem’s Edison enables consumers to measure, monitor, and manage their PC energy efficiency in an effort to reduce carbon emissions.
While Edison currently supports only the English language, the latest version calculates annual savings in a variety of global currencies, including US Dollars ($), British pounds (£), Euros (€), and Japanese Yen (¥). To toggle between the various currencies, users need to configure their PC’s "Regional and Language Options" settings in the Control Panel to the appropriate setting for the desired currency. (Note: Setting changes will be reflected only after a system restart.)
System requirements for Edison are Windows XP (Service Pack 2) or Windows Vista; 256 MB RAM; Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 or later; 7 MB free hard disk space. If .NET 2.0 is not already installed, 280 MB of additional disk space is required.
