The California Independent System Operator (CAISO), charged with managing the electricity grid in California, has issued a Flex Alert for both Wednesday, August 29th and Thursday, August 30th.
Due to the current hot weather, the demand for electricity is approaching capacity. As a result, state officials have called a Flex Alert. It's urgent that you:
- Turn off all unnecessary lights
- If you must use an air conditioner, turn it up to 78 degrees or higher
- Postpone using major appliances until after 7:00 PM
