Energy usage monitors now available for checkout at local library

If you have a card to the Kent District Library, you can now check your energy usage for free.

Visitors to the library can check out an energy usage monitor to gauge their home appliance electricity use.  Kent District Library launched the pilot program in February at its Englehardt branch in Lowell, through a partnership with Lowell Light & Power.  Consumers Energy is also backing the program.

Kent District Library has nearly 250,000 cardholders at 18 branches representing 26 Kent County communities.
