Did you know that Electricity is cheaper at different times of the day?
Rates from Origin Energy (Melbourne CBD)
7 am-11 pm @ 16.29 c/kWh
All other times @ 7.07 c/kWh
That is double the charge for using electricity during peak hours! Therefore, we should only use electrical goods that require more energy after 11 pm. e.g. Washing machine, dryer, maybe we should bake at night too? Surely we will save a few more dollars in our pockets!
I do my laundry only at night and dry them on the rack the next morning. The clothes do not smell as long as you do not fiddle them after they're done. However, if you've got delicate items or clothes that might change shape, it is best not to leave them overnight.
