Comments:As a consumer who was recently shopping for a new television, I was appalled at how hard it is to get information on the relative energy consumption of different models. Televisions are a major consumer of electricity, partly because they have gotten so large and get left on so much of the time. Phantom loads are also a big issue. I would love to see better labeling of TVs to show their energy consumption. Thank you.
