Enervee Ranks Appliance, Electronics On Energy Use
How energy efficient is that new television you just bought for your house, and how can you be sure? A new, Santa Monica-based startup, Enervee, has recently rolled out a new tool to help people estimate how much energy their television--and soon, other appliances--are consuming. The startup said it is working on introducing what it calls a miles-per-gallon (MPG) sticker for TVs, called the "Enervee Score". The company said televisions are only the first set of scores it will be providing, with a report on refrigerators due later this month. The company's site currently lists energy efficiency details on everything from laptop computers, printers, air conditions, washing machines, and more.
