TEWKSBURY, M A – The Tewksbury Public Library now provides cardholders with a helpful tool to assist them in reducing home energy use and costs.

The library’s Kill-A-Watt kit, donated by National Grid, is intended to assist homeowners in understanding their energy use. The Kill-A-Watt meter provided in the kit allows you to easily measure the electrical draw of household appliances to determine how they currently use energy. Ultimately, homeowners will learn how to reduce energy consumption and electric costs.

A booklet enclosed in the kit provides easy conservation tips and information about energy savings rebates and programs available through National Grid and Mass Save. Mass Save is an initiative sponsored by the Massachusetts’ gas and electric utilities and energy efficiency service providers. To learn more about energy savings programs, patrons can visit or

The Kill-A-Watt kit can be borrowed for one week.  Cardholders must request the kit at
the library’s first-floor main (circulation) desk.
