Hold off on doing your laundry

Why? Clothes dryers use more energy than any other household appliance. To save money, try doing your laundry outside of the Peak Event time period. 
 Step by step:
  1. Talk with your household members about your laundry schedule if necessary.

  2. Run your washing machine and dryer before or after the Peak Event. If you don't have time to run both outside of the Peak Event time period, just make sure to avoid running your dryer during the Peak Event.

  3. If you have a smart washing machine or dryer, or one that comes with a timer, take advantage and schedule your cycles ahead of time.

Go the extra mile: Instead of using your dryer at all, you could try hang drying your clothes.
