ENERGY STAR TVs Now Even More Energy Efficient

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Effective November 1, 2008, the ENERGY STAR label on televisions will designate the most efficient TVs in terms of overall energy use, rather than just "off" or standby mode energy use. In 2009, if all televisions sold in the United States met the new ENERGY STAR requirements, the savings in energy costs would be about $1 billion and greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by the equivalent of about 1 million cars.
