What Are Your Appliances Consuming?
Are you aware of how much energy that big screen television or that 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.
Member-owners can borrow the Kill A Watt® monitor from the Cooperative free of charge for a one week time period. Simply stop by the office in Denison or Onawa or call your Cooperative at 800-253-5189.
