Good News! The Feds have mandated that all TVs must have an Energy Label by October 2009.
The first TV on the block with a rating is the Sharp LC-37D85X (three stars).
The energy use is calculated as 10 hours per day – 365 days a year! Seems like a lot to me.
This is a really good move by the Department of Water, Environment, Heritage and the Arts, as the new, bigger TVs can be a shocker in terms of energy use. Have you felt the heat that comes off a big plasma?!
As soon as the data becomes available we’ll start a sokitt for TVs so that you guys can quickly and easily track down the most efficient TV in your price range!
