Do you ever wonder how much electricity your old refrigerator uses or the television that seems to be on all the time?
For Austin Utilities customers, you may check out a "Kill A Watt" electricity meter to answer that looming question of how much an appliance or piece of equipment uses.
It is easy to use. Just plug in the meter to the device you would like to measure and let the meter do the rest. After 24 hours, check the stored data in the meter to let you know the kilowatt hours used and the cost for that day. The meter will give you a daily, weekly, or monthly estimated cost of energy used.
