ENERGY STAR Qualified Set-top Boxes Bring Consumers Greater Savings and Entertainment

Monday, January 12, 2009

A new ENERGY STAR specification for cable, satellite, and telecommunications set-top boxes that deliver television and video content was effective on January 1, 2009. ENERGY STAR qualified set-top boxes are at least 30% more energy-efficient than conventional models. If all set-top boxes sold in the United States met the new ENERGY STAR requirements, the savings in energy costs would grow to about $2 billion each year and greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by the equivalent of those from about 2.5 million vehicles.
