Get Green by saving Green!
Anytime of year is a good time to save energy & money, but using energy saving tips during the cooler months can help your winter budget!  
 
DID YOU KNOW?
·         ENERGY STAR dishwashers are 41% more efficient than the federal minimum standard for energy.
·         An ENERGY STAR dishwasher saves approximately 1,200 gallons of water a year - 6 times the amount of water the average person drinks in a year!
·         60% to 80% of the power used by a dishwasher is consumed just to heat the water.
DISHWASHER ENERGY-SAVING TIPS
·         Run your dishwasher only when full.
·         Air dry the clean dishes by turning the energy-saver switch on.
·         Scrape - do not rinse! Scrape your dishes before loading the dishwasher. Pre-rinsing is no longer necessary with today's technology and detergents. You may be using more water to pre-rinse your dishes than the dishwasher uses for a full wash cycle!
