RECESSION-busting energy monitor packs will be available to borrow from all Sidmouth and Ottery St Mary libraries from Monday (April 27).

The packs, intended to help people control their use of electricity by showing how they can cut electricity bills and lower CO2 emissions, are part of Devon County Council's Carbon Management Programme.

The plug-in monitor shows how much power an individual appliance uses.

A DCC spokesperson said: "From that you can work out its running cost. This can help you manage your electricity by using more economical settings on equipment such as heaters and washing machines, and by using only as much as you need, for example, by not filling the kettle with more water than necessary. You can also work out what you would save by not using electricity - for instance, defrosting frozen food without a microwave.

The packs will be issued just like books and can be borrowed free for three weeks.
