Replace your dishwasher with an energy efficient model
Some dishwashers do not make efficient use of electricity and hot water. This is especially true of older models, and in homes with large numbers of people and dishwashing.
ENERGY STAR® is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices. Products can earn the ENERGY STAR® label by meeting the energy efficiency requirements set forth in ENERGY STAR® product specifications. ENERGY STAR® qualified products use as much as 50% less energy than standard products.
You can search for ENERGY STAR® products across many major retailers (e.g. Best Buy, Amazon) and find the best deals. You can compare the total cost of owning a product, which includes both the upfront cost as well as the ongoing costs of operating the product (at your utility rate / usage).
If you mark an item on your plan as completed, we will track your energy usage and savings over time. We can use this to find additional savings options and to help you save as much as possible.
