Green Hard Drives by Western Digital

This HARD DRIVES named The new GreenPower (GP) family will ship in capacities from 320 gigabytes (GB) to one terabyte (TB), and will save up to 40% in hard drive power consumption. Designed with power savings as the primary attribute. Those produts are designed to enable organizations to minimize their carbon footprint as well as realize significant savings in electricity costs. "For example, a data center with 10,000 drives can save $100,000 in annual energy costs, and reduce CO2 emission by 600 metric tons - the equivalent of taking almost 400 cars off the road for a year." said the Western Digital site.

GreenPower drives from WD deliver exceptional power conservation, ultra-cool, quiet operation and solid performance.
The first of these 3.5 inch hard drives, the 1TB WD Caviar GP, was available as of July first.
