The Library is partnering with nhsaves, a collaboration of New Hampshire’s electric utilities, and the NH State Library to educate our patrons about their electricity use. Nhsaves has donated two Cut the Carbon kits to KPL. Each kit includes a Kill A Watt meter along with instruction sheet, energy tips brochure, and a bookmark. Each kit can be checked out at no charge for two weeks, just like any book or movie you check out from KPL.
To use, simply plug the Kill A Watt meter into a wall outlet and plug an electric appliance (i.e., computer, television, refrigerator) into the meter. Each kit comes with a worksheet you can use to calculate the energy costs associated with running each of your electric appliances.
