Very bad energy rating
Difference of a few pennies really in real world. This is the bigger picture:

LG OLED TVs are officially eco-friendly. When compared with LED TVs, they're safer because they don't use backlights, they're made with less plastic, use fewer hazardous materials, and have a lower risk of producing indoor air pollutants.

So why are these new models rated in the bottom band of G when the former models are usually rated A or B?

I thought it was a bit strange to suddenly be rated so low on the energy efficiency charts!
Thought it might be due to new LG EVO technology meaning higher peak brightness and therefore power consumption.

Actually, all TVs are G rated now (even Samsung), due to changes in the way they are rated.

Just click the red G on any of the Samsung models here, for details of the rating:
