Killawatt Meters Loan Program
A patron checks out the meter, takes it home, and plugs their appliances and electronic devices into the meter instead of the wall outlet directly. By doing so, they are shown how many killowatts hours (kWh) that particular appliance or electronic device uses, whether it is switched on, running, idle, or in stand-by mode. This further allows the patron to determine the dollar amount it costs them to keep that particular appliance or device plugged in. Over the years the Kill-A-Watt meter has been available in libraries, residents have saved more than $70,000 in the purchase price of a meter and additional thousands off of annual electric bills.
The Kill-A-Watt meter has a circulation period of fourteen (14) days.
The Kill-A-Watt meter may be renewed twice.
In-system holds are allowed.
