Black Google would save 750 Megawatt-hours a year

June 20, 2007

My colleague Jyothish sent me this info:

An all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts.”

Google, which has a white background and gets about “200 million queries a day” could reduce global energy use by 750 Megawatt-hours a year by simply changing the color of its homepage to black.
