EPA requires Energy Star TVs to Use 40% Less Energy

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is upping the ante on TV efficiency by announcing Wednesday that models earning its Energy Star logo will soon be required to use 40% less energy than conventional models. The agency said the stricter television standards, which take effect this September, are the first in a series of revisions it plans this year for more than 20 products. It says current Energy Star-qualified TVs could represent 70% of the market in 2011 because of strong consumer demand and retailer support.
