So manufacturers will be mandated to scramble to find ways to reduce power consumption even more so now, instead of making the best product they can regardless.
With new technologies coming down the road, can this be done without sacrificing quality ? My 42" plasma takes that much power because it needs it. Can the manufacturers realistically find a solution without trimming down features & functionality and ultimately quality ? I know LCDs are lower power now.. but OLED.. or whatever's next ?
Do the people setting these quotas even have a clue if these are realistic goals ? Or are they ignorantly setting unrealistic goals ? Just asking...
One thing I don't get, how would this cause lost jobs and tax revenue as the CEA claims ? It would cause lost revenue to the electrical suppliers..
