Black Google – Blackl – That’s right. Save energy and reduce eye strain.

 Google black search

Black Google Blackl is an energy saving search engine powered by a black Google Custom Search. It first went online at a prototype stage to mark the UN Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen. Fully operational at the moment, Blackl is proud to be the world’s most sustainable search engine. It saves energy due to the small data transfer technology associated to its black Google search and black background display used. Any energy usage is also offset by purchasing renewable energy credits.

As part of the commitment to help the environment the Google black search is 100% based on Renewable Energy. By choosing to host on green, 100% Renewable Energy servers, Blackl is a certifiable green website. This is achieved by means of wind-generated Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) that are applied to the production of wind energy. Blackl’s dedication to provide the best possible search experience is also applied to environmental responsibility. Blackl is strongly committed to continue helping our web host prevent the annual release of approximately 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. To put this number into perspective, the benefit is equivalent to planting nearly 2,390 acres of trees or preventing the environmental damage caused by 6.1 million miles of driving. When using Google black search, you are also saving energy. A study “Energy Use and Power Levels in New Monitors and Personal Computers” carried out by the Environmental Energy Technologies Division of the University of California (Berkley), concluded: “Image displayed is primarily a function of the user’s color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen.”. According to this study, energy savings measured as a percentage of the total consumption will rise with the size of the screen being used. When comparing CRT and LCD monitors, measured energy savings are higher for CRT monitors. Using a black Google version as your home page will also minimize computer eye strain. Eye strain is often caused by excessively bright light. By minimizing the exposure to bright lights a black, Google Custom Search service will help you reduce eye fatigue.
