Did You Know?
If all TVs sold in the U.S. met the new ENERGY STAR requirements, we’d save about $1 billion annually in energy costs.
In November 2008, a new, more stringent ENERGY STAR specification
for televisions will become effective.
ENERGY STAR qualified TVs will be:
Up to 30% more efficient than conventional models
Available in a variety of today’s screen technologies and sizes
ENERGY STAR TV criteria:
Save energy inboth On and Standby/Off modes
Meets energy-efficiency guidelines forboth On and Sleep modes.
Must be shipped with a default Auto-Power Down setting that automatically switches from the On mode to the Sleep mode after a period of inactivity (4 hours or less).ENERGY STARQualified DTAs
What is a DTA?
A digital-to-analog (DTA) converter box is a device that converts digital television broadcast signals to analog signals.
Americans are watching more hours of TV per day making active power consumption even more important.
Each U.S. household has an average of 2.8 televisions.
Some of the new large screen televisions consume as much electricity as a new refrigerator.Why Buy ENERGY STAR?
Today’s TVs, when combined with related products like DVD players and set-top boxes, make up about 10% of a household’s annual electricity bill.
ENERGY STAR qualified products use less energy and cost less to operate resulting in:Saving Energy = Saving Money
By using less energy, qualified home electronics help reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by burning fossil fuels at power plants.
If every TV sold in the U.S. met the new ENERGY STAR requirements, Americans would prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to about 1 million cars.Saving Energy Helps Protect the Environment
