Kill-A-Watt Meters going fast 

Requests for those FREE Kill-A-Watt energy meters are piling up fast. The waiting list, as of today, is up to 65 people at the Anchorage library. That’s just a few days after media reports about the program (started by Eagle Scout Garrison Wilts), which lets you check the energy meters out from the library. The meters are simple to use. You plug them into your appliances and, on the display, it shows you just how much energy that refrigerator, lamp or old freezer uses.  Once you have those numbers, you can figure out if it’s time to replace that old Frigidaire. For more information, see this story from the Anchorage Daily News. To get on the waiting list for an energy meter, go to Click on “search the catalog” and type in “energy monitor.”
