Energy Meters

Thanks to a great partnership with the Office of Sustainability, the Technology Services Desk has Kill-A-Watt meters to check out. The meters are used to measure energy draw for household appliances and electronics. After evaluating the efficiency of items in your home, you can determine what draws the most power. By making small adjustments, such as changing settings and unplugging items when not in use, you can save money on your electric bill. You also help the environment by reducing energy consumption. The meters are available for a two-week loan period, and late fees are $1 per day. More information is available here.
