Although the press release claims potential savings in the neighborhood of 10%, I found my savings in the $5 per month range.

The most surprising discovery was that my mini heater for my office registers an expense of over $75 per month to operate!

The other shocking discovery was that my LG Window A/C sucks $2.10 worth of electricity per month just by being plugged in!

As an exercise in knowing which of your electrical devices use the most power, borrowing the Kill-a-Watt meter from the JoCo Library is a must for anyone who calls themselves “Eco-freindly.”
