Another important feature is that WatchOverEnergy software shows your energy saving details. It will track energy saving in watt-hours and will calculate your energy saving in dollars.
With WatchOverEnergy, you can reduce your monitor's energy costs by at least 20%. Make energy savings a daily part of your life and don't let energy savings meddle with your work.
WatchOverEnergy is a user-friendly energy saving program that runs only when you are not using your PC.
