Did you know that not all TVs are alike? A plasma television is one of the most energy-intensive appliances in a household. If you watch approximately four hours of television per day, a plasma TV will cost around $40 extra a year, compared with a high-efficiency LCD TV.
Next time you're looking to buy a new TV for home or work, purchase an energy-efficient one. This is a simple way to reduce your energy consumption and save money.
You can receive a discount or special offer under the Energy Saver Incentive for buying a TV that:
- has a 5.5–star energy-efficiency rating, or higher
- does not consume more than 450 KWh/yr.
