When to Use Energy
Though using less energy is sometimes not an option, when energy is used can have a tremendous effect on climate change. This is because different methods of generating energy have vastly different consequences on the environment, and they are available at different times.
Energy consumption is the cheapest on off-peak hours. On-peak hours are hours when electricity demand is the highest, meaning you pay a more expensive amount per kWh (kilowatt hour). Peak rates usually apply in the evening Monday to Friday around 4-9pm, where most energy is consumed in most households. Therefore, it is cheaper to plug in your devices during off peak hours, which are before 4 and after 9. It is better to use electricity early in the morning compared to in the afternoon.
