2014 Cookin' with Kilowatts Cookbook
2013 Cookin' with Kilowatts Cookbook
There are numerous ways, large and small to conserve electricity. City Light is raising awareness about energy use, while having some fun at the same time, by putting a
spin on your most creative, tastiest recipe. Out Cookin' with Kilowatts contest challenges you to create or use a recipe that you would typically bake in an oven or
on a stovetop, and instead use an electric cooking method that uses less electricity
than an oven or stovetop. For instance, as you see in the chart below, a microwave
uses less energy than the oven.
And of course, these recipes have the added benefit of keeping the kitchen cooler this summer.
