Awesome SavingThe cost savings incurred due to the use of G8 Eco App as compared to a desktop is undeniable.

Calculation

A simple calculation formula for calculating power consumed by your desktop/Eco App is :

Average desktop power consumption

The jury is out on the exact power consumption that a desktop uses. Most desktops that you would have bought earlier in 2010-2011 time frame use anywhere between 350W to 550W of power. In fact the desktop SMPS power rating normally ranges from 400 W to 800 W. The newer desktops are more power efficient and carry a rated SMPS of about 500W. The load varies depending on what you are running on your system. For our calculations, we have assumed that your desktop consumes around 400W.

Cost of power

Once again this varies from country to country and geography to geography. It also varies by what kind of load you have taken (residence vs commercial). On an average the costs
