I saw this on our company website the other day, and after the Heat Pump thread......thought ya'll might be interested!! The Edison Electric Institute (EEI), the EPA, and Oxford University have independently found that FLAT SCREEN TV's use considerably more energy than conventional sets. NBC News reported that a conventional set uses about 100 watts of energy, an LCD screen about twice that much, and PLASMA screens up to 600 watts !!! energy Star ratings for flat screens are not due out until mid-year.
