Most of us tend to use more energy during the morning and evening hours when we're at home. One area utility is asking its customers to use their dishwashers, ovens, washing machines and dryers between noon and 5 p.m. instead. The request comesfrom Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative due to the frigid temperatures and more energy being used outside of those hours.
