The Green Minute – How Do You Buy a Green Television?

The Consumer Electronics Association estimates about 39 million televisions will be sold in the US this year. More than 19 million of these TVs will be greater than 40 inches in size.

If you are looking to buy a new television, but you don’t want an “energy hog,” look for the ENERGY STAR label.

ENERGY STAR qualified televisions are, on average, over 40 percent more energy efficient than standard models. The label can be found on everything from standard TVs to HD-ready TVs, to the largest flat-screen LCD and plasma models.

Check out ENERGY STAR’s list of qualified TVs (from 15 inches to 60 inches).
