Article means that the saving in power for this added complexity is $29/desktop/year! Which is fairly small compared to the employee cost! (Assuming 6000 desktops from the article).
I kind of feel that they maybe solving the wrong problem - is this an example of where traditional fixed desktops should be ditched for thin client with the desktop running on a VM cluster in a much more efficient way? Especially if they're saying in the article that their fleet of desktops were really only active for 3hrs/day!
