Power Check Power Meters available at Mesa County Libraries

Watt’s Watt with Xcel Energy, the City of Grand Junction and Mesa County Libraries

Find out watt’s watt and save. Check out the meter. Check out your energy use. Check out the savings. Power Check Power Meters are now available at Mesa County Libraries. These Xcel Energy kits will help identify household operating costs of various appliances and 
help identify high-energy-use appliances.

Power Check is an energy efficiency and education program provided by Xcel Energy and your public library to put you "in the know." With a library card, they can be checked out for two weeks like other library items.

These kits are made available through the library by GJ CORE (Conserving Our Resources Efficiently), the City of Grand Junction’s green team. The purpose of GJ CORE is to promote and monitor waste reduction, energy conservation, water conservation, alternative transportation, and pollution reduction and prevention in all City operations. As a part of our Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Strategy, we identified a community outreach program that included a watt-meter check-out program as a priority. GJ CORE made a request to Xcel Energy to provide watt-meters to Mesa County Libraries.
