EPA toughens standards for Energy Star TVs
September 4, 2009
The Environmental Protection Agency has revised the qualifications for televisions to achieve the ENERGY STAR label, requiring TVs to be 40% more energy efficient than conventional models. These requirements will help consumers save even more energy and money and fight climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions while allowing them to continue to enjoy the features, performance and quality they expect. Televisions meeting EPA’s new, more stringent ENERGY STAR specifications will be available in stores nationwide starting May 1, 2010.
