Do you know how much your home's electrical devices cost to operate each month? Could some of them be costing you too much?
You can find out exactly how much energy your appliances and electronics use, even when they're turned off, with help from an instrument called a Watts Up meter from WPS and Focus on Energy.
A Watts Up meter is an electronic tool that measures power (watts) used by appliances and electronics. When an electrical device is plugged into this tool, the meter displays the device's power consumption. It is an easy way to determine how much electricity — and money — it requires to operate various appliances.
Watts Up meters are available at most of the local libraries within the WPS service territory. Stop by your local library and check one out today!
Please note: If you don't see your local library listed below, ask if your branch would be able to get a meter through an interlibrary loan.
