How do you rate your TV for ef­fi­ciency?

En­ergy rat­ing la­bels must be dis­played by law on all new televisions. They pro­vide you with in­for­ma­tion on how much en­ergy a model uses and make it easy for you to com­pare the en­ergy ef­fi­ciency of all the screens on the mar­ket. You can com­pare televisions of the same screen size at a glance: the more stars on the top of the la­bel, the more en­ergy ef­fi­cient the tele­vi­sion is. When com­par­ing televisions of dif­fer­ing sizes, you should re­fer to the en­ergy con­sump­tion fig­ure on the la­bel. This tells you the an­nual en­ergy con­sump­tion (kWh per year) of the tele­vi­sion, cal­cu­lated on an as­sumed use of ten hours per day, over a year. The lower the fig­ure, the less en­ergy the tele­vi­sion uses to run.
