Status RED: grid carbon intensity is high; please do not run big appliances such as a dishwasher or washing machine now if you can postpone.

Avoid running big appliances at home in the UK when the status is RED and you'll reduce your carbon footprint!

If you run your dishwasher or washing machine after 10pm rather than during the day or evening then you may save 10% or more in CO2 emissions from the electricity.
