Your knowledge, your choice

It's great to avoid using large appliances, like dishwashers, dryers and coolers, if you can.  But if you have to use them, our clean energy tracker can help you decide when. 

By opting for times when renewable sources are relatively higher in the grid, and when the demand-to-supply ratio is average or low, you are making an informed decision about when to use energy.

Together, small changes to when we use energy can make a difference.
