Money Saving Tip - Dry Dishes

If your dishwasher has an air-dry setting, choose it instead of the heat-dry setting. You will cut your dishwasher's energy use from 15 percent to 50 percent*. If there's no air-dry setting, turn the dishwasher off after its final rinse and open the door. Also, run your dishes at bedtime during the non-peak energy hours and allow them to dry overnight without any electricity! Rumor has it from our local electric co-op, they will soon be giving rebates to families that start using energy at non-peak hours! Savings money and getting money back! Yeah, that enough incentive for us!

*According to California Energy Commission
