    ONCE MORE AROUND THE BARNYARD: ENERGY HOGS

    Big TVs are big energy hogs
    December 28, 2006 (CBC News)
    - An energy expert warns that big-screen televisions and the equipment they are hooked up to can use as much power as a refrigerator, but most consumers don't realize it until the electricity bill arrives…

    - Anne Wilkins, manager of the federal government's Energy Star program: …We have seen an increase of energy use in homes, and a lot of it has to do with this type of equipment..
