A Watts Up! meter is available for loan to New Holstein Utilities customers from the NHU office or from the New Holstein Public Library. The meter measures voltage, amperage and the cost of appliances or other equipment operating at 110 VAC (e.g. refrigerators, televisions, etc.) that can be plugged into a standard electric wall outlet. You can find out how much energy your appliances are costing you to operate. With the information on what it costs to operate your electric equipment, you can compare your current equipment to new energy efficient models that may be available to purchase.
Whenever possible, review the Energy Guide label before purchasing a new electric product.
