ComEd has provided the library with a Kill-A-Watt meter for check out. Kill-A-Watt meters allow you to measure how much electricity your appliances use when they are turned off. You may be surprised to learn how much electricity that HD television wastes when it is not being used. It also comes with helpful energy-saving tips, tools and incentives that will save you money and reduce your carbon footprint. Kill-A-Watt meters can be checked out for a week.
