Killawatt Meters Loan Program

Checkout the meter, take it home, then plug in your appliances and electronic devices into the meter instead of the wall outlet.

You’ll be shown how many killowatts hours (kWh) that particular appliance or electronic device uses, whether it is switched on, running, idle, or in stand-by mode.

The Kill-A-Watt meter can help you save on your electric bills.  This service is available to all Georgia Libraries through a partnership with the a Georgia Environmental Finance Authority.
