WATT DETECTORS UPDATED

2000px-Light_bulb_icon.svgOur Watt Detector kits have been updated by OPPD to adjust for the new rate. This is an easy way to check up on how much energy some of your appliances or electronics are using. We don’t always think about the “phantom load” behind the scenes on gaming devices or DVRs, for example, but a Watt Detector kit can show you how much they are costing you when you aren’t even using them. Watt Detector kits may be checked out for 2 weeks.
