As residents in South Texas already know, August weather can be brutal — with temperatures reaching 100 degrees or higher.
According to CPS Energy, high-energy demand days are a few days each summer when demand for electricity is highest, and they typically occur from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on very hot days.
Every bit of conserved energy helps CPS Energy continue to power San Antonio. CPS Energy has provided five tips on how you can potentially save money on your energy bill by conserving energy with your washer, dryer and dishwasher.
- Save money by letting the Texas heat dry your clothes. Use a clothesline or drying rack instead of the dryer. If your clothes dry a little stiff, use your dryer’s fluff cycle (before 3 p.m. or after 7 p.m.).
- Run your washer, dryer and dishwasher only when they are fully loaded.
- Wash your laundry with cold water.
