I got a tip on here, that i think has really paid off. Someone said to do laundry run dishwasher etc. after 8pm the off peak hours after electric. I have been doing this, and my electric bill was way low for last month. I think it really has made quite a difference. I am not sure who posted this, but Thanks! That bill is one of my biggest expenses, and the lower I can get it the better! It is especially important during this hot summer months, when no doubt the AC will be running at times.
