Kill a Watt
What Are Your Appliances Consuming?
Are you aware of how much energy that big screen television or the old, spare refrigerator in the basement or garage is using?
With the Kill A Watt electricity usage monitor, you can discover how much electricity your household appliances consume and which appliances continue to consume electricity even when turned off (phantom loads). Simply plug the Kill A Watt monitor into any household outlet and plug your appliance into the Kill A Watt and the monitor will display how much electricity is being consumed, regardless of whether the appliance is turned on or off. The Kill a Watt display will count electricity consumption by the kilowatt hour (kwh) enabling you to calculate your electrical operating costs by the day, week, month, even an entire year. Members can borrow the Kill A Watt monitor from the Cooperative free of charge for 14 days. Simply stop by your local SECPA office, call 800-332-8634 to "check-out" a Kill A Watt monitor for use in your home for a two week period.
