The Center for Sustainability <http://www.cpcc.edu/cfs>  has donated Kill-A-Watt electricity usage monitors <http://www.p3international.com/products/special/P4400/P4400-CE.html>  to the Central and Levine libraries for checkout. 


Electricity bills are rising! The Center for Sustainability provides you with a simple but effective tool to find out which of your appliances are energy hogs. 


Need to know which appliance to replace? Simply connect any appliances to the Kill-A-Watt unit, and it will assess how efficient they really are. Large LCD display will count consumption by the kilowatt hour, same as your local utility. You can calculate your electrical expenses by the day, week, month, even an entire year. Instructions for use are included. 


Also check the quality of your power by monitoring voltage, line frequency, and power factor. Now you´ll know if it is time for a new refrigerator or if that old air conditioner is still saving you money. How much is it costing you to leave your computer running all day and night? With the amazing Kill-A-Watt, you´ll know "watts" wasting your energy dollars. 


For more details, please contact the Center for Sustainability at 6756 - or stop by and visit us on Central Campus in IT-1110!
