Reduce Your Consumption By 15%
An initiative of the Governor’s Energy Challenge, encouraging you to improve your energy efficiency.
“Undertaking this challenge to conserve energy will help ensure that Georgia’s natural resources are protected for future generations to use and to enjoy.” …Governor Sonny Perdue
The Governor’s Energy Challenge has partnered with Georgia Public Library Services to offer Georgia residents an opportunity to measure the energy consumption of appliances throughout their home and to take steps to reduce their electricity consumption and lower their utility bills.
By checking out a Kill A Watt unit, you have taken the first step to conserving electricity in your home. Read below for some advice on how to get the most out of this device.
The Kill-A-Watt unit is compatible with any electrical outlet and is used to assess both the efficiency and the actual consumption of standard home appliances. The LCD display measures consumption by the kilowatt-hour (just like your local utility company). This appliance can be used to estimate the cost of running each appliance for a day, week, month or year.
Before you get started, please download the “Appliance Efficiency Tracker” from GEFA or download a PDF version of the “Appliance Efficiency Tracker EZ” form. This document will help you track your results to find the most energy-consuming appliances and will allow you to modify the results to reflect your actual consumption patterns.
Check your monthly utility bill to learn how much you pay for electricity. Look for the cost per kilowatt hour, rather than the total bill, to determine your rate. If you do not know your monthly rate, then ask your utility provider or use the estimate below.
9.10 cents/kWh ($0.0910/kWh) – Average rate costs in Georgia.
