Associated Press writer Jonathan Fahey reports the results of an Electric Power Research Institute study to determine how much energy an iPad consumes in a year. “The answer: not much,” writes Fahey, noting that “the annual cost to charge an iPad is just $1.36.” He adds: “…if people are using iPads instead of televisions to play video games, or ditching their desktop computers for iPads, the shift to tablets could mean lower overall power consumption.”
