A Flex Alert is in effect through Sunday, August 12th. Save energy immediately.
The California Independent System Operator (ISO), who monitors the electricity grid throughout California, has issued a Flex Alert starting today and lasting until Sunday, August 12th.
Due to the current hot weather, electricity conservation is necessary. It's important that you:
· Turn off all unnecessary lights.
· Postpone using major appliances until after 6:00 pm.
· If you must use an air conditioner, adjust it up to 78°
degrees or higher.
Through conservation efforts Californians can save about 1,000 megawatts statewide which is enough electricity to power 1 million households and equal to the output of two large power plants.
