Time of Use

Clothes Washer and Dryer

Run During Off-Peak

Start or program your electric washing machine or clothes dryer to run during off-peak hours (9 p.m. - 4 p.m. daily). Wash full loads of laundry whenever possible and switch your temperature setting from hot to warm to cut energy use in half for a single load. Using the cold cycle can reduce energy use even more. About 90% of the energy consumed for washing clothes is used to heat the water.

Dishwasher

Use the Delay Feature

Start or program your dishwasher to run and finish before 4 p.m. or start after 9 p.m. If possible, choose an air-dry cycle that uses unheated air to dry your dishes. You can save about 15-50% of your dishwasher’s operational cost with this feature.
