Energy Upgrade California | How to save energy during peak hours

How can you use cleaner energy or shift your energy use to off-peak hours? There are many ways you can power down from 4–9 pm to preserve the energy usage in your home! Plug in your devices after 9 pm to charge them overnight. Hold off chores like turning on the dishwasher or running a load of laundry until at 9pm or even the next morning so you use cleaner energy. You can also change your thermostat before 4 pm so you use less energy during peak hours. Setting timers to remind yourself when it's time to use energy in your home will make shifting your energy use habits to save money and reduce your pollution and greenhouse gas emissions even easier.

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT]

(Dre Hollingsworth signing in video)

Over the last year, COVID-19 has affected us in many ways. But it has also taught us the power of community.

This year brings new hope. Every day we're one step closer to ending this pandemic. So, don't let up. Keep wearing a mask. Staying six feet apart. Washing your hands. And get vaccinated when it's your turn.

Every day and every action matters.
