Tripp Lite

Winner in: 2010

Everyone can benefit from greener UPS (uninterruptible power supply) technology. Even just one single high-efficiency UPS system used to protect a desktop computer system can help reduce a user’s environmental impact. Designed for desktop applications, Tripp Lite’s ECO Series UPS Systems are up to 99% efficient and turn off designated ECO outlets when a computer is turned off or goes into standby mode. This feature eliminates “phantom loads” – idle peripherals that waste electricity when they aren’t being used, even when they appear to be off. ECO Series UPS Systems can save users up to $40 per PC, conserve 470 kilowatt-hours of electricity, and reduce a user’s carbon footprint by 630 pounds every per year.
