West Kingston, RI — APC is contributing five dollars for every APC Back-UPS ES 750 and APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest sold through participating retailers and directly from apc.com in North America on Earth Day, April 22, 2009. The contribution will be made to The Nature Conservancy, the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people.
The APC Back-UPS ES 750 and the APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest are designed to serve as highly efficient power protection solutions that provide home computer systems protection from damaging surges and spikes. Both products feature SmartShedding Technology, allowing the products’ master outlet to sense when the computer has either been turned off or has gone into sleep mode, automatically shutting off energy to unused peripherals plugged into the controlled outlets. By cutting power to these “dark loads,” the APC Back-UPS ES 750 and APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest can provide a combined average savings of $40 and $25 per year, respectively, according to the manufacturer. In addition to protection and energy savings, the APC Back-UPS ES 750 also provides battery backup power to keep your system running for up to 70 minutes in the event of a power outage.
“APC is excited to once again partner with retailers to offer energy efficient products while contributing to an important cause,” said Dave Johnson, senior vice president, home & business Networks, APC. “The APC Back-UPS ES 750 and APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest are two innovative products that reduce energy consumption and provide APC’s legendary power protection.”
Currently available in North America, the APC Back-UPS ES 750 (BE750G) and APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest (P7GT) carry estimated retail prices of $99.99 and $34.99, respectively. The APC Back-UPS ES 750 can be found at North American retailers such as Best Buy, MicroCenter and Staples and the APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest can be purchased at Fry’s, MicroCenter and www.staples.com. Additionally, both products can be purchased directly from www.apc.com. Contributions shall be made as long as supplies last, up to a maximum combined donation of $25,000.
