The 80 Plus program is being implemented by Ecova, Inc. on behalf of utilities and energy efficiency organizations throughout the United States. Participating electric utilities and efficiency organizations are offering financial incentives paid to PC and power supply manufacturers for qualifying units.

To qualify, power supplies must have a minimum efficiency of 80% when tested at each of the following three load conditions: 20%, 50% and 100% of rated power supply output. The test procedure for such measurements may be found at www.plugloadsolutions.com.
