Description: The most
effective way to lower energy use and greenhouse gasses is to go
beyond a specific technology focus and take a whole-system approach
to buildings. The goal is to find the best combination of
technologies to lower a buildings energy footprint as much as
possible. On the agenda is use of new SmartMeters
to diagnose energy use in the home and upcoming rate options to
maximize the benefits of the efficiency improvements. We will
then cover cost scenarios and return on investment calculations.

Kill A Watt
you ever looked at your energy bill and wondered how much of the
energy was used by your refrigerator or other appliances? You can now find out. Lake County Energy Watch has begun
an energy efficiency tool lending library. The first tool available at the
lending library is the Kill A Watt.
A Kill A Watt is a tool that measures the energy use of
appliances and can estimate the cost to use that power over time in
intervals of hours, days, weeks, months or a year. Kill A Watts are
available at the Community Development Department for a check out
term of two weeks. Please
call Michalyn at 707-263-2221 to make a reservation.
