Energy monitors available at Eastbourne library

EASTBOURNE residents can now keep a close eye on their electricity usage by borrowing an energy monitor from the library.

Following a successful pilot scheme in the town, energy monitors are now available to borrow, free, from Eastbourne’s central library and at public libraries across the county.

There is no charge for borrowing the monitors which show how much electricity a householder is using, how much it costs and how much carbon dioxide is being produced in generating the electricity.

The monitors can be borrowed for an initial three-week loan with the option to renew them for a further three weeks.
