California's Proposed Energy Efficiency Standards for Televisions

Fact Sheet
February 19, 2016

The California Energy Commission (CEC) is in the process of finalizing minimum efficiency standards for new televisions sold in California. The standards will reduce annual energy use of new TVs by 30 to 50 per cent. Once the standard is in full effect, California will save almost $1 billion/yr in the form of lower electric bills and prevent the need to build a large 500 MW power plant.
