DANVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Autonomic Software, Inc., a provider of the most advanced enterprise IT power management solutions on the market, today announced that PG&E has selected Autonomic for inclusion in its list of approved Network Desktop Computer Power Management Software Vendors based on the company's ANSA Power Management Software. In addition, Autonomic's new purchase plan is the first to allow IT managers to pursue a 'green' IT strategy and drastically lower energy costs with no out of pocket expenses.

Many Utility Companies now offer rebates to companies that implement a centralized networked PC power conservation management solution. Some offer a one-time rebate per PC, while others offer a rebate based on the amount of electricity saved. Under either scenario, Autonomic Software makes it easy to implement a centralized PC power management solution with no up-front costs.

Under this pricing plan, customers issue a "zero dollar" purchase order for the PCs they wish to include in the program, and Autonomic deploys the ANSA PC Power Management solution. Autonomic then generates the reports required by the Utility Company to qualify for the rebate and assists the customer in completing and submitting the rebate forms. The company then merely assigns remittance of the utility rebate check to Autonomic.

PG&E has established a number of programs to help businesses reduce energy consumption and save money. Autonomic's ANSA Power Management, which combines industry leading power management technology with highly innovative rebate-based pricing, has qualified the company for inclusion in PG&E's Network Desktop Computer Power Management Software Vendors list. More information on a variety of PG&E's business rebate programs is available online at http://www.pge.com/businessrebates/.

"Reducing the IT energy spend has become increasingly important over the last 2 years, and our program combines leading-edge power management technology with an aggressive and innovative pricing policy that businesses, cities and universities are finding extremely attractive," said Tony Gigliotti, CEO of Autonomic Software. "By allowing customers to pay us with the rebate we know they'll receive, we're also helping them 'go green' much faster than they otherwise could have."
