UK to ban TV standby buttons

Posted on Saturday, July 15 2006 @ 17:10:59 CEST by


The U.K. government is planning to outlaw standby switches on TVs, videos and DVD players to cut the amount of electricity wasted in homes.
Refrigerators, washing machines and dishwashers will have to become energy-efficient, and lightbulbs that burn too much energy will be phased out.

According to yesterday’s Energy Review, standby facilities use 8 per cent of all domestic electricity.

Lighting, set-top boxes, televisions, chargers, fridges, freezers, washing machines and computers were highlighted as wasteful products that must be redesigned to save power.

New homes, which are already four times more energy-efficient than the average household, are to face stringent regulations.
More details over at Times Online.
