The California Independent System Operator (ISO) has declared a Flex Alert for Southern California, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, June 20, due to high temperatures in the region. During the heat wave, demand on the power grid can be strained, as air conditioner use increases. The risk of power outages is very high. We all need to join together and conserve energy.
Consumers and businesses are urged to conserve electricity especially during the late afternoon when air conditioners typically are at peak use.
You can help avoid power outages by:
- turning off all unnecessary lights
- using major appliances after 9 p.m. and
- setting air conditioners to 78 degrees or higher.
