. The EarthWatts power supplies reduce energy consumption and 80 PLUS compliant. This is the latest rating system for energy efficiency. EarthWatts power supplies increase power efficiency to 80% over the 70-75% of other power supplies currently available. These power supplies are also RoHS compliant and feature no lead or mercury in the production. Lastly on the environmental friendly feature list, EarthWatts power supplies use active PFC to reduce electrical waste.
Antec claims: "As consumers take action to protect the environment, Antec encourages everyone to look for solutions that help conserve energy and eliminate waste and pollution," said Scott Richards, senior vice president for Antec.
"EarthWatts is our most energy efficient design, and it provides users with the power and stability they have come to expect from Antec products. With the 80 PLUS certification, EarthWatts is leading the way in reducing energy consumption and protecting the environment."
Three EarthWatts models are available—380W, 430W and 500W. EarthWatts power supplies are ATX12V 2.2 compatible and feature a single 80mm. The single 80mm fan is a low noise unit. Included connectors on EarthWatts power supplies include four SATA, dual 12V and one PCIe. Pricing on EarthWatts power supplies range from $64.95 for the 380W to $99.95 for the 500W models.

They are mostly advertising about how it wastes less electricity and also has an active PFC. A lot of their power supplies and many other companies already do this.
