Plasma TVs also on Greens ban list

The Greens are upset that NZ will not ban energy inefficient plasma TVs, as the UK is planning to do.

Gerry Brownlee says:

But Mr Brownlee yesterday told the Herald the Government did not favour banning energy-hungry TVs.

“Our view is the information about appliances should be given to consumers and consumers should then make their choice.

“Consumers should be given as much information as they possibly can about the energy efficiency of appliances … but at the final point of purchase it’s the consumer’s decision.”

Can you imagine the backlog of things to be banned under a future Labour/Green Government?
