‘Greenest’ TV yet
The 42-inch Econova LED TV consumes 40 watts in eco-mode, uses a solar remote control, and has a partly recycled aluminum stand. It features a Zero Power Switch, which reduces power consumption to 0W when the TV is turned off. Its on-board battery is recharged by clean solar energy to reduce the impact on the environment.
Greenpeace says it is the first TV free of chemicals like PVCs and BFRs, and places Philips “well ahead of other TV manufacturers.” In September, the Econova was given the European Green TV 2010-2011 award by the European Imaging & Sound Association.
