Pedometers and Energy Monitors

Kill-A-Watt Energy Monitors

The Library is partnering with London Hydro to circulate Kill-A-Watt energy usage monitors.

What's an energy monitor?

It calculates the cost of energy consumed by an appliance.

How does it work?

Any 120V appliance that plugs into a standard wall outlet may be plugged into the monitor. The monitor gives a reading of energy consumption in kilowatt hours. Sample items you may test are refrigerators, tv's, freezers, computers, lamps, fans and more. Only non-120 V applicances, such as your stove or clothes dryer, cannot be tested. A booklet to calculate the cost of energy consumed by the appliance will circulate along with the monitor.

How can I borrow one?

Monitors may be borrowed for 3 weeks. To place a hold on a Kill-a-Watt monitor, type Kill a Watt as the title in our catalogue. Here's a direct link to the monitors in our catalogue.
