Power Check

When it comes to energy efficiency, knowledge is power


The more you understand about your own home energy use, the more you can save! Power Check is an energy efficiency and education program provided by Xcel Energy and your public library to put you “in the know.” Just check out a Power Check meter from your local library and you’ll be on your way to discovering how to save energy and money. The Power Check program varies by state. Additional resources and program support materials are featured below.
