The new ENERGY STAR specification for imaging equipment introduced by the US and EU Governments is designed to help users protect the environment and save money through the use of energy efficient products. Only compliant products carry this logo.
The latest ENERGY STAR rating for imaging equipment has more stringent requirements than its predecessor, particularly with regards to paper consumption. All KYOCERA Document Solutions' printers and multifunctional products produced after 1 April 2007 fulfil and exceed the requirements of this new ENERGY STAR specification.
ENERGY STAR rated printers can cut electricity use by over 60 per cent and an ENERGY STAR rated MFP can save about 160 EUR in electricity bills over its lifetime when compared with non-rated devices.
