Try and run your dishwasher, washer and dryer, oven, air conditioning and heating devices that run on electricity in the evening hours. These appliances also generate lots of heat that you’re just going to increase your cooling needs during the summer time. Depending on where you live and the type of electric meter your home is outfitted with, you may pay less for off-peak (evening) energy, making this another very easy way to save on your energy bills.

Most businesses get charged based upon their usage during the day, to encourage them to minimize their peak loads. The more we can reduce our usage during the day, the less electricity that energy providers need to produce (and possibly waste) in order to account for those demands, making them more efficient.
