JVC LCD TVs the most cost-efficient sets to operate
JVC today announced that its line of LCD televisions outperforms the latest ENERGY STAR 3.0 standards for energy use, making them among the most cost-efficient sets to operate. In the 32” class, JVC is tied for the most efficient TV, and has three of the next most efficient sets. In the 40-42 inch class and the 46-47 inch class, JVC swept the first four places, in every case significantly more efficient than the ENERGY STAR requirement. And in the 50-52 inch class, JVC had the top three most efficient models. Overall, JVC LCD TVs outperformed the ENERGY STAR requirement by anywhere from 29 to 60 percent.
Earning the ENERGY STAR qualification means a product meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. According to ENERGY STAR, there are 275 million TVs currently in use in the U.S., consuming over 50 billion kWh of energy each year — or four percent of all households’ electricity use. This is enough electricity to power all the homes in the state of New York for an entire year.
