Product Overview

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.

Feature Summary

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.

Features include:

  • Scheduling. Identify work and non-work schedules to optimize power schemes based on when your PC is in use or on standby.
  • Settings. Choose from among several options for power savings and settings.
  • Estimated Savings Reports. Find information that shows how PC power settings correlate to money, kWh and CO2 savings.
  • Intuitive User Interface. Drag easy-to-use sliding bars to choose settings and instantly see the power and monetary savings. Clearly marked tabs make the interface easy to navigate.

Global Currencies

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

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.
