Statewide Flex Alert Issued
Due to Heat, Energy Demand and Tight Supply
Consumers urged to reduce energy use from 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM to protect grid reliability
The California Independent System Operator (ISO) has issued a statewide Flex Alert, a call for voluntary electricity conservation, for Wednesday, July 28th from 4 PM to 9 PM, due to predicted high energy demand and tight supplies across the West. Read the news release.
A Flex Alert is issued when the electricity grid is under stress because of generation or transmission outages, or from persistent hot temperatures. A Flex Alert is a call for consumers to voluntarily conserve electricity. While we are fortunate along the coast to have more mild temperatures, your participation can still help avoid more serious steps to protect the power grid, including rotating outages.
During a Flex Alert:
-Set thermostat at 78° or higher, if health permits
-Avoid using major appliances
-Turn off unnecessary lights
-Use fans for cooling
-Unplug unused items
