Energy efficiency becomes evergreen than ever before. Over the last few years a significant research in wireless communications, aiming to enhance communications efficiency subject to constraint of power consumption, has given rise to optimization techniques of power control and management in wireless networks. Although the initial target was the utilization of resources in order to exploit communications services, the benefits of this effort, underlying the green perspective, are now opening eyes out to research community for a more green matter of conscience in use of communication equipment and devices. Towards this direction and affected by a green sensitivity in terms of wasting useful resources, we propose a system model for infrastructure WiFi networks aiming to reduce the consumed power, by introducing a scheme for channel allocation to Wireless LANs under energy conserving criteria.
