Xerox Redesigns Products to Comply with Tough New EPA Energy Star Criteria

Xerox Logo

Xerox Corporation today said it has redesigned its products to use significantly less energy to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s rigorous criteria set by the Energy Star requirements.

Xerox said more than half of the company’s office and production product offerings meet the tough new EPA standards. Previously, the Energy Star criteria for office copiers, printers and multifunction systems measured power consumed in standby and low-power modes.

The new standard asks a different question: How much energy would the device use during a typical week? It measures the energy consumed if the system mimics the tempo of a normal office, running a sample job mix with downtime for lunch, overnight and on weekends. The result is a Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) figure that must meet the EPA’s tough new requirements in order for a product to achieve Energy Star status.
