Plasma TVs are sending home power bills sky high, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

According to recent statistics although electric hot-water systems remain the No.1 energy guzzler in the home, plasma TVs are overtaking

The ACF Green Home campaigner Clare Donovan said a 68-centimeter cathode TV consumed 98 watts of energy costing 1.18 cents an hour. A 100-centimeter LCD TV cost 214 watts and 2.6 cents an hour and a 106 cm plasma screen used 350 watts at 4.2 cents an hour.
