The Berkshire Athenaeum is now lending a Kill A Watt Kit, which assists homeowners in understanding and curbing their energy use. The kit includes a meter for measuring the electrical draw of household appliances. An instruction booklet provides further information on energy efficiency measures as well as cost saving tips and programs available through Mass Save. Library patrons may borrow the kit for 3 weeks using a CWMARS library card.
For further information, stop at the Athenaeum Circulation Desk during regular library hours. This initiative is sponsored by the Berkshire Athenaeum; Eversource (formerly WMECO); National Grid; and Mass Save.
