Kill-a-Watt Meter Program

Kill-a-Watt Meter Program

Finding Electricity Hogs in your Home
with the P3-Kill-a-Watt™ Meter


Ever wonder if your refrigerator is really running you into the poor house? Is your computer or TV silently sipping electricity when you are not using it? What is the lamp you just replaced with an energy-saving compact fluorescent lamp saving you? Now you can find out with the P3 Kill-a-Watt Meter -- available on loan from Bethesda Green -- and make energy efficiency changes to decrease your overall electricity use.

How does it work?
The Kill-A-Watt meter is a simple, easy-to-use version of the home utility meter. Rather than finding the energy use of your entire house, this meter reads the power demand, energy use and other handy statistics of appliances and electronics.

How do I get a meter?
Send an email to with your contact information and let us know you're interested in borrowing a meter. Or you can stop by Bethesda Green (4825 Cordell Ave, Second Floor of the Capital One Bank building). In addition to getting a P3 Kill-a-Watt Meter on loan, the package includes a copy of "Cut Your Energy Bills Now: 150 Smart Ways to Save Money & Make Your Home More Comfortable & Green," by Bruce Harley. Borrow the meter and book, bring it back to your home, test your appliances, then let us know how it worked.

There is no charge for borrowing the meter or book, but you will need to bring a driver's license to be copied and a $20 deposit in cash or check to Bethesda Green. The $20 is redeemable upon the return of the meter and book undamaged within two weeks.
