Find your biggest energy users with a Kill-A-Watt Meter™
Wondering where that big electricity bill is coming from? A kill-a-watt meter allows you to check your household appliances and find out how much electricity each one uses. Simply plug the appliance into the meter and get a readout of the energy use, then use a simple worksheet to calculate how much it is contributing to your monthly energy bill.
The meter comes as a kit with a worksheet to help you figure out your electricity costs and a list of print and electronic resources that can help you save energy. Kill-A-Watt™ meter kits can be checked out for three weeks using your YDL library card.
