California to ban power hungry TVs?

Posted on Friday, October 16 2009 @ 23:03:11 CEST by

Telegraph reports California may become the first state to ban power hungry flatscreen TVs. California's energy commission is planning to impose strict energy consumption limits on TVs with screens that are more than 40 inches wide, as the commission claims that TVs and related gadgets account for about 10 percent of household energy consumption in the state.
The new law, the first of its kind in America, would set maximum energy consumption standards for TVs that would be implemented over two years from January 2011. Similar energy requirements have applied for decades to electrical appliances such as refrigerators and air conditioners.


The commission argues that television owners would save around $30 (£18) a year per set in reduced energy consumption. The state itself could benefit by as much as $8.1 billion and could drop plans to a new natural gas-fired power station.
