You can save 750 Megawatt-hours of energy while browsing

You can save energy 750 Megawatt-hours a Year by using Blackle website. How !!

The next time if you want to search for something on the web, try going to instead of your usual search engine.

The site looks very similar to Google and its search queries are done by Google, then what is the difference ? . The major difference is, instead of open white spaces used in Google , Backle uses black color .

To display black color on screen computer monitors consumes a very small amount of power comparing to white or other colors. claims that black pixels take less power than white and so using its search saves energy. It believes that small things matter when it comes to reducing our energy use, limiting our CO2 output and reducing the likely extent of global warming as a result of human activity.
