TV Energy Star Rating

As of May first, televisions that carry the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star label are now required to, on average, be 40 percent more efficient than conventional models. Available nationwide, the new sets will help consumers save more energy and money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while offering the same features and performance. The new requirements represent EPA's most stringent Energy Star TV specification to date. With more than 19 million sets with screens larger than 40 inches expected to ship to American homes this year, the new specifications also offer important savings in larger size TVs. If all televisions sold in the U.S. met the new requirements, Americans would save $2.5 billion annually in energy costs while reducing annual greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to the emissions of about 3 million cars.
