Kill a Watt
Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) in partnership with Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority (GEFA) sponsors the “Kill-a-Watt” loan program. Its goal is to help residents measure both their energy consumption and the efficiency of the electric appliances in their homes.

Live Oak Public Libraries customers are able to check out a “Kill-a-Watt” Energy Detector Toolkit at any branch. The “Kill-a-Watt” unit measures energy consumption by the kilowatt-hour the same unit of measurement that utilities use. It can estimate the electrical consumption and costs associated with each appliance by the hour, day, week, month or even an entire year. Each toolkit will also include instructions on how to use the meter, what the information means and tips about energy consumption.
