Energy Saving Programs and Rebates

Appliance Electricity Use

Is your freezer costing you more than it’s worth? Check out an appliance meter from the City of North St. Paul. The Kill-a-Watt EZ Meter monitors the amount of electricity an individual appliance uses and calculates how much it costs you to operate it for a day, a week or a year.

The meter is easy to use, connect and read. You can check out a monitor for 2-weeks to see measure your appliance efficiency. A $35 deposit is required. Call 651-747-2413 to reserve your monitor.
