A watt meter loan program is coming to Haliburton County to help residents monitor electricity usage of their household appliances.

This is a partnership between Haliburton Solar and Wind, the Haliburton County Public Library, and the Heat Bank.

Heat Bank Coordinator Tina Jackson explains what this program is.

Jackson says this is a great way for residents to better manage electricity costs.

She says people have to juggle between paying hydro, buying groceries and heating their homes.
