How does Regoog save energy?Regoog saves energy because the majority of the page is black! Studies
have concluded "a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark)
screen." (Roberson et al, 2002).
The government study tested a range of popular CRT and LCD monitors of several sizes. The data concluded a white screen uses 34% more power than a black screen on the average monitor! Exact efficiency savings will differ on each monitor, exact wattage consumed may be greater or less than 34% depending on monitor model and size. Generally the larger the screen, the more power consumption
Green computing consulting experts estimate a "Black Google" in theory would save 750-3000 megawatt-hours a year.
A large amount of energy could be saved if Google switched their home page from white to black!
Because Regoog uses the Google Custom Search technology each search on
every topic you make gives the same great results as the original white
Google site, except Black (you might say "green").
Not only is using this "black Google" power saving, and saves you
money, Regoog is the worlds first carbon offset energy efficient search
engine! The volunteers who run this website are dedicated to investing our own effort, time and money into
