Posted: 4:06 pm PST December 7, 2010
SEATTLE -- Electronics are expected to be some of the hottest gift items this holiday season.But the City of Seattle would like to remind you that if you're in the market for a new television, you might as well make sure it's an energy-efficient model.Christine Bunch, Retail Programs Manager for Seattle City Light tells KIRO 7 that plasma TVs are the least energy-efficient, while flat screen LCDs are the most efficient.
According to Bunch, flat screen LCDs also have more controls for adjusting energy-draining settings.Another big factor, says Bunch, is size. Bigger screens obviously suck more power.Bunch says that with technology advancing all the time, you don’t have to sacrifice quality for energy-savings.
