Despite scorching temperatures, two simple tips can help you save on your electric bill this summer. Just remember to shift and save!
Shift your energy use by using appliances before 2 p.m. or after 7 p.m. This way you’ll avoid peak times and Power Rush Hour®. Then, run cold water cycles on laundry to keep your bills cool all summer long.
By shifting the bulk of your energy use outside of 2-7 p.m. and adding energy-saving habits into your daily routine, you’ll keep your bills as steady as possible even through the hottest summer months.
