Electronics Need to Step Up to Meet new Energy Star Standards

The EPA announced new standards for electonics seeking to grab the brass ring – the Energy Star rating.

Now computer monitors, digital picture frames and other types of displays will have to be 20 percent more energy efficient than normal conventional models.

The projected energy savings for all such electronic equipment meeting this new standard is estimated at $1 billion a year, the equivalent of preventing greenhouse gas emissions from 1.5 million vehicles per year.

This is the fifth revision in this category’s Energy Star standards since its creation. For more details on the Energy Star program, see www.energystar.gov
