Just because something doesn't appear on Wikipedia doesn't mean it isn't true. I suggest you look at this:

http://www2.imm.dtu.dk/courses/02206/java/power.html

Every gate that changes from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0 in CMOS logic (used in most digital circuits) leaks a small amount of voltage across the power leads. NOPs minimize these changes and therefor take less power than more complex instructions.
