The United States Environmental Protection Agency has a program of rating office equipment that have energy conservation features. The equipment is identified with the Energy Star logo. Attached are two pages which explain the energy savings when equipment with these features is purchased.

The University of Florida supports the purchase of equipment with the Energy Star symbol. We will be including these features in our bid specifications for copiers, computers, facsimile machines, printers, terminals, and monitors. Items not purchased from a University bid or contract should be examined for the Energy Star symbol/logo, and selected when possible and economical.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter as it will help hold down energy costs for us all.
