More Energy and Water Saver Kits for loan

Due to high interest for borrowing the My Energy and Water Saver kits, we have introduced 3 more kits at our libraries.

A total of 6 kits are now available for loan through the Eastern Regional Libraries network.

The kits are designed to help households save energy costs, by identifying causes of high electricity and water usages, such as water leakages, inefficient fixtures, and usage behaviours.

Each kit consists of the following resources:

  • thermal imaging camera
  • power meter
  • stopwatch
  • thermometer
  • CSIRO Home Energy Saving Handbook
  • instruction guide

The kits come with a step-by-step instructional guide on how to use the various equipment to measure electricity and water usage.

This initiative is a joint partnership between Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges Councils. Since January, the kits have been borrowed a total of 32 times.

Knox households account for 18% of total greenhouse emissions in our community. This initiative is supported by our Climate Response Plan 2021-2031, which aims to help our community lower emissions, and reach net zero by 2040.

Place a reservation to loan the kit at Your Library website.
