Saving Energy With ENERGY STAR®
Kyocera’s commitment to the environment is the basis or our voluntary partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ensuring our products meet the high standards of the ENERGY STAR® program. As the government-backed, trusted symbol for energy efficiency, the ENERGY STAR label identifies highly efficient products and designates superior energy performance in business products. For more information on the ENERGY STAR program, please visit www.energystar.gov. Kyocera’s products meet the stricter requirements introduced in 2007.
Kyocera manufacture energy compliant printers, monochrome and color copiers/multifunctional products (MFPs). Many of these products employ our patented ECOSYS Technology, a printing solution that incorporates long-life consumables with an industry-leading low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and minimal impact to the environmental.
Printers that have earned the ENERGY STAR label can decrease the equipment’s power use by more than 60%. ENERGY STAR qualified printers automatically enter a low-power “sleep” mode after a period of inactivity. Spending a large portion of time in low-power mode not only saves energy but helps printing equipment run more efficiently and last longer. Since office equipment is generally kept on 24 hours per day, power management features are important for saving energy and energy-related costs.
Copiers/Multifunctional Products (MFPs)
Monochrome and Color Copiers/Multifunctional Products (MFPs) combine printing, scanning, copying and faxing into one space-saving unit. By powering down, Monochrome and Color Copiers/Multifunctional Products (MFPs) that have earned the ENERGY STAR label can reduce energy costs associated with use by almost 40%. Low-power mode saves energy while helping MFPs run more efficiently and last longer. Because most copiers/MFPs are left on for long periods of time, power management features are important for saving energy and an easy way to reduce air pollution.
