Default Western Digital Announces New Eco-Friendly Hard Drives

Western Digital today announced a new line of hard drives with greater emphasis on power saving – GreenPower. Western Digital has new GreenPower drives for desktop, enterprise, consumer electronics and external applications. The new GreenPower drives claim power consumption reductions of up to 40%, resulting in $10 per drive, per year savings in actual power costs. Western Digital also claims best-in-class operating temperatures and acoustics while yielding four-to-five watts of power savings compared to standard drivers. The power consumption reductions can translate to reduced CO2 emissions up to 49KG per drive, per year. Western Digital claims the reduced CO2 emissions is comparable to taking a car off the road for two weeks, based on average daily CO2 emissions.
