    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Want to save someone --
 or yourself -- some real money amid rising energy costs? "Think meters,"
 says Paul Holstein, co-founder and COO of CableOrganizer.com -- a leading
 purveyor of cable, wire and equipment management-related products. "Such
 'green gadgets' are a user friendly and convenient way to monitor, project
 and control energy and related costs."
     Handy devices such as the Watts Up?(TM) electricity meter determine
 what any standard 120 volt AC electric device will cost to operate. ($72.95
 to $195.95 from CableOrganizer.com)
     Eliminating the guesswork about how much it'll cost to power something
 over a short or long span of time, the Watts Up? electricity meter quickly
 displays the wattage and the energy usage cost of any given appliance. This
 user friendly energy meter is also capable of displaying 16 electrical
 measurements and values. The higher end Watts Up Pro and Pro ES models
 enable users to upload the data to a computer for further analysis.
     The Kill A Watt(TM) electricity power monitor ($29.95 from
 CableOrganizer.com) is another economical and simple tool to assess the
 efficiency of electric appliances.
     Just plug any 115 Volt AC electric appliance up to 15 Amps into the
 Kill A Watt meter and the large LCD screen will display the power
 consumption of the appliance by killowatt-hours. This information allows
 users to calculate the electricity cost of the appliance, by the day, week,
 month or year based on local power company rates.
     If your electric bills are high, the Kill A Watt power meter will help
 users discover which electric appliances are consuming too much power. The
 Kill A Watt electricity meter can also check the quality of electric power
 by monitoring voltage, line frequency, and power factor.
