Is there any place to look up power consumption in various models of current Panasonic (and other brand) plasma models ?

In particular, I'd like to find an estimate of the difference in average power consumption in a Panasonic VT25 50" VS 55" model.

This would be a selling point for the spouse, who wants to go Al Gore on me and get an LCD. Not that that's bad. It's just that I want a VT25 plasma I need some ammo here.

(Or is this info on another thread ?)

Tell her the power difference between plasma and lcd is about $3 per month. If your wife were actually trying to be like Al Gore, your electricity bill would be 19 times higher than the average person.

New plasmas are twice as bright and use half the power old units did. The 50VT25 uses $39/yr, less than any LCD except a Sharp at $33 and about the same as Samsung. Every other LCD I saw listed was higher.
