Do the laundry after 9pm
Earlier this year, we decided to change our habbits concerning laundry, using the dish washer, owen for bread baking. After noting down each day how much power consumtion we had for each single day, we calculated that we could save money – and most importantly for me helping the environment – by changing our electrical bill subscription, meaning that we would pay half price for power from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
This all ment, that we now save money and even do less laundry than before. Before that I could turn on laundry up to three times a day, now I only do it once a day (or night:-)). Furthermore, we support the night curves of the power station, meaning we try to use less energy in peak hours which would be at daytime.
