Which types of printers use the least energy?

Printers

Consider the use of a dot matrix, impact, or inkjet printer over a laser printer. Dot matrix and impact printers use 80% to 90% less energy, while providing good speed and adequate quality for many applications. Black-and-white inkjet printers use 95% less energy and are nearly equal to laser printers in terms of quality. (Color inkjet printers, meanwhile, do not offer substantial energy savings over color laser printers.)
