It hasnt happend but they are moving to create a ban on big power hungry plasmas But the California Energy Commission is looking for ways to relieve the strain on the power grid. Officials say the standards, once fully in place, would reduce the state's annual energy needs by an amount equivalent to the power consumed by 86,400 homes. During a peak viewing time when most sets are on, such as the Super Bowl, TVs in the state collectively suck up the equivalent of 40% of the power generated by the San Onofre nuclear power station running at full capacity. Televisions account for about 10% of the average Californian's monthly household electricity bill. http://www.usnews.com/money/blogs/fresh-greens/2009/1/6/california-may-ban-big-screen-tvs.html What do you think?
