Woodland and Davis Residents Can "Kill-a-Watt" and Strangle Energy Costs
Residents of Yolo County, including Davis and Woodland, are participating in a fun and easy Kill-a-Watt program that helps them painlessly learn how much energy they are consuming, how much they are paying for it, and how they can easily save on both. According to the City of Woodland web site:
The Woodland Public Library now offers the Kill-a-Watt meter, a device that measures household appliance energy consumption. The meter helps consumers calculate energy costs and each comes with simple directions. The Kill-a-Watt meters are provided by the Yolo Energy Watch, a partnership between Yolo County and PG&E, to promote energy efficiency in homes and businesses throughout Yolo County.
The user-friendly Kill-a-Watt meters can be checked out and taken home from any public library in Yolo County – including the Yolo County Library system as well as the Woodland Public Library.
“You can’t reduce your energy use and save money on your energy bill unless you know how much energy you’re using and where you’re using that energy,” said Yolo Energy Watch coordinator John Mott-Smith. “These devices, thanks to Yolo County Library system and the Woodland Public Library, are now accessible to anyone.”
