Winter Peak Hours

  1. For breakfast, try using small appliances such as a griddle or toaster, or serve cold cereal and fruit.
  2. Prepare laundry by sorting it now so you’re ready to throw in a load outside of Peak Hours.
  3. For more savings, set your thermostat to run only before and after the 6 a.m. - 9 a.m. Peak Hours. 

All hours:

  1. Make dinner using a slow cooker, or use your oven – but make sure no other major appliances are running.
  2. After dinner, throw in a load of laundry. Use cold water. Be sure to run the washer and dryer one at a time, alternating use. Line-dry if possible.
  3. After laundry is finished, it is time for evening showers, where the water heater will kick on.
  4. After showers, turn on the dishwasher before bed.

Summer Peak Hours

  1. Adjust the HVAC to a warmer temperature setting during these hours. If you’re home, use a fan instead or close curtains to keep the sunlight out. Turn the HVAC back down to a cooler temperature after 7 p.m.
  2. Warm weather is perfect for grilling! Try cooking outdoors instead of using the oven.
  3. Set your pool pump to run in the morning or after 7 p.m.

All hours:

  1. Remember your mom’s pot roast? Try making dinner using a crockpot. If you must use your oven, make sure no other major appliances are running.
  2. After dinner, throw in a load of laundry. Use cold water. Be sure to run the washer and dryer one at a time, alternating use. Line-dry if possible - it will make your clothes smell good!

  4. After showers, turn on the dishwasher before bed.
