The California Energy Commission is proposing a new law that would effectively ban certain HDTVs from being sold in the state of California

The California Energy Commission is proposing a new law that would effectively ban certain HDTVs from being sold in  the state of California.

The CEC says new HDTVs that aren't "energy efficient" are a major drain on the states electric grid and are wasting almost a million dollars a year in electricity.

Plasma TVs use significantly more power than LCDs and if the law is passed, they would be virtually eliminated from California stores under the new law.
