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

Plasma televisions can add about 30 Euro to electricity bills. Plasma screens use four times more electricity and more standby power.

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.
