Now you can check out a power meter when you check out your books at the Boulder Public Library.
(Assuming you do still check out books at the library….)
The city of Boulder just purchased 18 Kill-A-Watt meters that can be checked out for three weeks at a time.
To make it work, you plug it into the wall, and then plug your appliance (fridge, cell phone charger, laptop, etc.) into the Kill-A-Watt.
The meter tells you how much your devices pull off the grid — even when they’re not on.
