compare power/heat wireless vs ethernet adapter on gen 1 Carbon Touch X1?

We have generation 1 Thinkpad Carbon Touch X1 PCs running Windows 10 x64 Pro.  We get pretty good perfomance from either the (a) internal wireless or (b) external Plugable 3.0 (only works well with 2.0) ethernet adapter.


To keep these PCs running well past their warranties, we would like to minimize power/heat.  Are there any specs to guide us as to whether (a) or (b) uses less power and generates less heat?
