— FLEX ALERT —
A statewide Flex Alert is in effect for June 30th-July 1st, from 2:00-9:00pm on both days. Save energy now.
The California Independent System Operator (ISO), who monitors the electricity grid throughout California, has issued a statewide Flex Alert for June 30th-July 1st, 2:00-9:00pm on both days.
Due to the continued heat wave and subsequent rise in A/C use, electricity conservation is critical to prevent blackouts. 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
We ask that you please forward this email to your friends and colleagues.
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.
