The original premise of the 80 PLUS program was to enlist utilities and computer manufacturers to participate in an innovative upstream buy-down program to integrate more energy-efficient power supplies into desktop computers. The program has now evolved into the Ecos Plug Load Solutions program, which promotes and incents a broad array of highly energy-efficient commercial and retail technologies.
