Install a Solar-Powered Clothes Dryer (a.k.a., A Clothesline)
By Eric Corey Freed
 

Instead of running your clothes dryer every time you do a load of laundry, invest $5 in a clothesline. A clothesline is free to operate and will leave your clothes smelling fresh. Save the dryer for rainy days — and when you do use your clothes dryer, keep the lint traps clear to save energy.

Tip: While you’re doing the laundry, run only full loads, using warm water instead of hot.
