Have you ever wondered about how much power your fridge is using but you have no way of figuring it out? The Stettler Public Library has a power monitor that you can sign out to find this information. As part of its energy efficiency program “Energy Your Way”, FortisAlberta has donated a power monitor to the library that can be signed out like any other library item. You can set the monitor using your current electricity rate and it calculates the amount that it costs to run that appliance. Check out www.fortisalberta.com for your current electricity rate, practical tips on reducing energy usage as well as a home electricity cost calculator that you can use to calculate the total monthly costs of running your electrical devices.
