Avoid washing dishes during Peak Events

Why? Dishwashers use a significant amount of energy to heat the water used with each load you run.
Step by Step:
  1. Pre-load your dishwasher any time that is convenient for you.

  2. Run your dishwasher before or after the Peak Event.

  3. If you have a smart dishwasher or a timer on your dishwasher, you can schedule the load to run outside of the Peak Event time period.  

Good to know: It's best to avoid washing dishes by hand as an alternative during Peak Events, since that also uses a signficant amount of energy.
