Of course, the washing and treating apparatus 1 can operate based on additional information other than energy information. Additional information other than the energy information and the energy information may be received from the communication component 2. [

The energy information is information related to any one of energy sources such as electricity, water, and gas. In the present invention, for example, the energy information is information relating to electricity.

For example, the types of information related to electricity include time-based pricing, energy curtailment, grid emergency, grid reliability, energy increment, generation Amount, operation priority, and energy consumption amount. In this embodiment, the charge related to the energy source is an energy charge.

That is, the energy information can be classified into charge information (energy charge) and non-charge information (energy reduction, emergency situation, network safety, generation amount, energy increase, operation priority, energy consumption amount, and the like). The energy information can be divided into scheduled information generated in advance based on previous information and real time information that varies in real time. The schedule information and the real-time information can be classified according to the prediction of the information after the present time (future).

The energy information may be time of use (TOU) information, critical peak pattern (CPP) information, or real time pattern (RTP) information according to a change pattern of data over time. The energy information may vary with time.

According to the TOU information, the electricity rate (charge per unit electric power) changes stepwise according to time. According to the CPP information, the electricity rate changes in steps or in real time with time, and emphasis is displayed at a specific point in time. That is, in the case of the CPP pattern, the general charge is cheaper than the charge of the TOU pattern, but the charge at the specific point in time is significantly more expensive than the charge in the TOU pattern. According to the RTP information, the electricity bill changes in real time.

Meanwhile, the energy information may be transmitted or received as true or false signals such as Boolean, actual price information may be transmitted or received, or a plurality of levels may be transmitted and received. When the washing or treating apparatus 1 or the communication component 2 receives a true or false signal such as Boolean, it recognizes any one of the signals as an on-peak signal, The signal can be recognized as an off-peak signal.
