All 18 Kent District Library branches now offer energy usage monitors available for checkout. The monitors show the energy consumption of household appliances, which can help you cut your electric bill, either by spurring decreased use, unplugging of “vampire” appliances that use energy even when they are turned off and, for example, replacing appliances or their components with energy-efficient models or parts (such as light bulbs).
Consumers Energy has provided monitors for the other 17 branches in KDL’s service area.
“Libraries are a perfect connector of information and education,” said Michelle Boisvenue‐Fox, KDL assistant director. “These kinds of partnerships are crucial to strong communities.”
