††IT's Easy Being Green††

IT's a dirty business, but at Madison Computer Works we find IT easy to be green!

Our industry consumes a great deal of energy and natural resources, both in the creation and use of computing devices. We feel a very strong obligation to mitigate the consumption and waste wherever possible. Here our some of our conservation efforts:

2001-Replaced our CRT displays with LCDs; years before it was common practice.

2003-Purchased our first hybrid fleet vehicle, a Toyota Prius.

2008- Joined MG&E's Green Power Tomorrow program. Since early 2008, 100% of our electrical consumption has been powered by wind or solar generation.

2011- Installation of motion/photo sensors and energy-efficient lighting throughout our 8000 square foot facility. This has lowered our electrical consumption by more than 13%.

2011-Addition of a 9.87kW solar PV system. Take a look at the roof over our sales building and you will see three rows of solar panels generating lots of power from the sun. Currently we generate more electricity from solar/wind power than we consume!

2011- Selected as an EPA Green Power Partner, an MG&E Clean Power Partner, a Sustainable Times Green Business, and a Green Professional under the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council Green Masters Program.

2012 and beyond-Accepted as a Focus on Energy Trade Ally. We continue to be a proud EPA Green Power Partner, MG&E Clean Power Partner, and a Green Masters Program Green Professional.

2013-Purchased a Toyota Prius c. Currently 80% of our service fleet are hybrid or high-MPG vehicles.

We recycle nearly all post-consumer computer parts and have been doing that for over a decade...long before it was "fashionable" or mandated by state law.

We will continue to reduce/reuse/recycle whenever possible and do our part to improve our air quality, fight global warming, and tread as lightly as possible upon this planet.
