Kill A Watt Meter Phoenix

Some appliances use energy even when you have them turned off -- they're called energy "vampires" and the Kill A Watt can help you find them. Once you know how much energy your appliances are using, you can take action to reduce your energy usage and lower your monthly energy bills.

Valley residents can borrow this device for free at a nearby public library .*
