Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 5 Years

Projector running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per week. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the projector and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving projectors.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these projectors for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
