TV WATCHING MAY USE MORE ENERGY (AND MONEY) THAN YOU EVER KNEW

Bloomberg BNA reporter Andrea Vittorio reports that your beloved TV may be quietly zapping more energy and cash than you ever realized.

The news hails from a new study by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

In her story, Andrea reports that among the recent 55-inch and larger TV models tested, energy-saving features were disabled whenever users change the default picture setting.

“A few seemingly innocuous clicks on the remote control can as much as double the cost to operate a TV over its 10-year lifetime, costing owners an extra $100 to $200 in energy bills,” the study said.
