from the electricity-guzzling dept
Our electricity bills are up these days — and while the blame can be pinned to our increasing reliance on various electronics from charging gadgets to computers to DVD players to video gaming consoles, one big culprit for many may be the big screen TVs we’re buying. Apparently, these suckers use electricity the same way SUVs guzzle gasoline — but, just like SUVs, don’t expect Americans to give up their big screen TVs. Instead, the industry is looking at coming up with some self-imposed standards to make these TVs a bit more energy efficient.
