Killawatt Meters Available at the Library

The Library has 2 killawatt meters available for checkout. Kilawatt meters measure the amount of energy used by appliances in a home and are way for people to learn about energy efficiency.  Patrons can check out a meter, plug it in, then plug an appliance into the meter to determine how much energy that particular appliance uses.  Click here for a video that explains more about the killawatt meter.
