The "Check It Out" Energy & Water Saving Toolkit is now available at libraries countywide. Starting April 25, all libraries in San Mateo County are offering special toolkits that community members can borrow to help them conserve water, use less electricity and save money by taking a few simple actions.
The "Check It Out!" Energy and Water Savings Toolkit contains several supplies that individuals Allan Brucecan keep: an LED lightbulb, weather-stripping outlet gaskets and low-flow faucet aerators and showerheads. The kit also features a variety of tools to measure and correct electricity overuse, heat loss and water leaks. The toolkit's illustrated user guide provides step-by-step instructions to save energy and water, without sacrificing comfort.
Please help spread the word about these new toolkits to your neighbors! Anyone with a valid library card in San Mateo County can borrow one of the "Check It Out!" toolkits for up to three weeks. Over 70 toolkits are available countywide. One of the kits was even on display at
Menlo Park's Earth Day
April 22, 2017.
The toolkits are an initiative of the
San Mateo County Energy Watch
. The toolkits are funded by California utility payers through their local utility company.
