Now Available! Portable Energy Meters

October 12th, 2009

Thanks to Madison Gas and Electric, students, staff and faculty can now check out a “portable energy meter” from Steenbock Library. The model for the two available energy meters is the “Watts Up?” Standard. These are the same type of meters that are also available from Madison area public libraries.

Madison Gas and Electric supports an energy meter website with a video demonstrating the use of these energy meters.

The meters can be checked out for two weeks at a time, and you can use “Place Requests” in MadCat to have them sent to the campus library of your choice.

The Schwerdtfeger Library (space science and engineering) also has energy meters; these meters are the Kill a Watt model.
