The Electric Power Research Institute just released a report quantifying the electric usage from various household appliances, and the iPad comes in at only $1.36. Given that people are probably using the pad instead of watching the telly or using a laptop or desktop, the iPad helps to conserve energy! In comparison, a 42 inch plasma television uses 30 times as much energy and a laptop 6 times. Your iPhone? It uses 25 cents a year of power.

Keep on (i)padding!
