California Heat Triggers ‘Flex Alert’

During this record breaking heatwave the California Independent System Operator (Cal ISO), which oversees most the state’s electric system, has issued a Flex Alert, asking for customers to voluntarily conserve energy.

To avoid power outages during peak usage hours, you’re urged to set your thermostat at 78 degrees or higher, refrain from using major appliances like washing machines and dishwashers, and turn of all unnecessary lights between 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
