Western Digital have also explained just how much WD Green customers help save the planet with some interesting stats: 466,128,000 kWh saved, which is equal to one coal power plant, 279,676,800,800 grams less carbon dioxide emissions, 466,128,000 liters of water saved, and less water consumed with 9,322,560 liters.

They're some seriously powerful numbers, and this is just with the one particular series of hard disk drives!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
