If you're looking to lower energy bills by reducing energy consumption, thinking about how you print at home is a great start. That's because home printing offers potential for boosting savings, and HP's innovative products can help.
HP products are designed specifically to use less energy than ever before. The HP Eco Solutions
program makes it easy to identify HP innovations, products and services that can reduce your environmental impact and save you money while delivering the high quality you expect.
Start by assessing your printer's energy, then calculate the energy-savings potential
The HP Carbon Footprint Calculator for printing
lets you evaluate the energy consumption, carbon footprint and associated costs of your current printer compared with a new HP printer or all-in-one. This free tool makes it easy to compare individual products head-to-head, including current HP printers and older HP models from the last 20 years. The results show ways you can reduce environmental impact using energy-efficient products.
Look for the ENERGY STAR® logo
Many HP products meet requirements
for the Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR® program — the most recognized symbol for energy efficiency in the U.S. ENERGY STAR qualified HP printers deliver efficiency gains over standard, non-qualified models. Improvements range from 35 to 55 percent for HP inkjet products and 10 to 20 percent for HP LaserJet products.1
Products that put the squeeze on home energy costs
HP printers designed for the home illustrate HP's commitment to help users reduce energy use — and limit environmental impact at the same time.
The HP Deskjet D2600 printer uses 30 percent less energy than its predecessor and is made from 50 percent recycled plastic, while the HP Deskjet F4400 printer uses 55 percent less energy than its predecessor and is made from 20 percent recycled plastic. The HP Photosmart C4600 all-in-one delivers up to 32 percent energy savings compared with previous versatile home printers.
All three printers are ENERGY STAR qualified and use HP 60 inkjet cartridges
made from at least 50 percent recycled plastics, which was recovered from HP inkjet cartridges collected through HP Planet Partners
and other sources, such as recycled water bottles.
Upgrading from older, inefficient printing and imaging devices is a quick way to take advantage of the latest energy technology. Another way is to consolidate multiple products into a single machine.
If you work out of your home, several new HP Officejet models offer compelling energy savings.
For example, the HP Officejet 6500 all-in-ones consume 40 percent less energy than competitive laser products,2
while HP Officejet Pro 8500 all-in-ones consume 50 percent less energy than competitive laser products.3
Both are ENERGY STAR qualified and include energy-saving features, such as a junk fax blocker4
that eliminates powering up to print unwanted pages and reduces wasted paper, too.
Several new HP Officejet all-in-ones also use LED copy technology, which requires 4 times less energy in idle mode and 1.4 times less energy in copy mode, compared with comparable fluorescent tube technology.
A commitment to continuous efficiency gains
HP technology innovations reflect our ongoing determination to help drive down energy consumption. The goal is to help users lower energy costs and environmental impact through efficient printing. By 2011, HP will improve the overall energy efficiency of HP ink and laser printing products by 40 percent relative to 2005.5
