California looks to set new rules for television sets

Posted:

CALIFORNIA (NBC)-- THe state of California is taking steps to ban power-hungry TV sets.

Beginning in 2011, all television sets up to 58 inches will have to be more energy efficient.

And the rules get even stricter in 2013.

By then, only a quarter of the TV sets currently on the market would qualify to be sold in California.

Lawmakers believe the move will cut California's power consumption by a billion dollars a year.
