How much more energy do TVs today use than TVs in the past?



  1. 0 Votes

    One might expect tvs to be using much more energy today than they did before, but that is actually not the case.  According to an interesting article at that compares wattages of tvs from each decade, the wattages seem to be all over the place.   A 50 inch plasma tv (set on medium brightness) from 2008 is comparable in wattage to the first electronic tv in 1938.

    Hope this helps!
