If you are looking for a new HDTV and youâ€™re concerned how much energy the device will use then youâ€™d be happy to know that recently the USA government passed a law that all TV manufacturers have to display a Federal Trade Commissionsâ€™ Energy Guide Label on every HDTV. The label is more commonly found on house hold electronics like dish washers and refrigerators. The label is designed to show how much energy that specific TV consumes within a set amount of time. Not only that, but it will also show how it compares to other TVs. The labels were expecting to be used back in May, but starting July 11th, the labels will also be required to be shown by online retailers as well.
