Ever wonder what kind of energy your refrigerator uses or how your TV really affects your electric bill? Find out by checking out an easy-to-use Power Check energy meter at Ramsey County Library.
The Power Check energy meters, available courtesy of Xcel Energy, are free for patrons to use in their homes. They will help identify appliances that have high energy use, predict and calculate cost savings by reducing appliance use or replacing old appliances with new ones, and identify appliances that continue to use energy while switched off. The meters come with instructions for use, worksheets, money-saving tips and incentive programs.
