Did you know you may be able to save money on your electric bill simply by going to the library? TADL is lending out Kill-A-Watt power meters, under a partnership with TCL&P. The meters measure how much electricity it takes to run common appliances like televisions, computers, and much more.
“It’s a great way to see how much it costs to leave them on,” says TADL’s Kristen Talaga. “It's also helpful if you have an older appliance you’re planning to replace. You can gauge your potential savings in energy costs.”
TADL has 35 power meters available at its six locations, and lends them out for free for up to four weeks, whether you’re an L&P customer or not. Reservations can be made in person or through the library’s catalog.
L&P customers can also take advantage of other energy saving incentives through its Energy Smart Program, and get an in-home energy audit for $10. To learn more, click here.
