Off-Peak Energy Consumption

Use energy at night.
Peak energy usage is between 4-6PM. Running dishwashers and clothes washers/dryers later at night will reduce strain on the power grid and keep the house cooler in summer.
On and Off
OFF is your friend.
Anything you plug in not only uses electricity, it generates heat. So get in the  habit of turning off lights, TVs, and other devices when you leave a room, especially in warmer weather. An added benefit – it will put less strain on your  air conditioner resulting in a longer life.
