Has the switch to digital television made an impact on U.S. energy use?

    Yes, more energy is being consumed – because the government has offered vouchers for digital cable boxes, which are necessary for television, over 30 million people have reedemed their vouchers.  This means that not only will the televisions be plugged in absorbing energy, but so will the cable boxes, which absorb almost as much energy when they are powered on as when it is powered off.
