Energy Meters

The Library has partnered with Entegrus to loan energy meters to library patrons for free.

What's an energy meter?
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 energy meter gives a reading of energy consumption in kilowatt hours. Sample items you may test are refrigerators, TVs, freezers, computers, lamps, fans and more. Only non-120 V appliances, such as your stove or clothes dryer, cannot be tested. A booklet to calculate the cost of energy consumed by the appliance circulates along with the energy meter.

How can I borrow one?
Energy meters may be borrowed for 21 days. To place a hold on an energy meter, type "energy meter" as the title in our online catalogue. Here's a direct link to the energy meters in our catalogue.
