Hello all,

It’s expected to be exceptionally hot in California on Friday and the Independent Systems Operator has issued a statewide flex alert (below). So please conserve energy and/or shift times of use where you can. And if you know folks in the hottest areas of California, particularly in the San Jose area or Central Valley, feel free to share our cooling center page at: http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/CoolingCenters/.

Stay cool (literally),

John

California ISO issues statewide Flex Alert due to heat wave

The California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO) has issued a statewide Flex Alert that calls for voluntary electricity conservation from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday, September 1, 2017.

Consumers are urged to conserve electricity especially during the afternoon when air conditioners typically are at peak use. Consumers can help avoid power interruptions by turning off all unnecessary lights, using major appliances before 1 p.m. and after 10 p.m., and setting air conditioners to 78 degrees or higher.

Forecasts now project record demand load on Friday and all available resources are on line and ready to respond. Power supply conditions will be tight Friday and so will be the natural gas supply in southern California. Southern California Gas Company and the ISO are following the processes established to manage gas supply in the LA Basin during the limitations placed on the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility. The generation fleet has performed well so far during this prolonged heat wave without any major outages. The ISO’s service territory serves about 80 percent of California’s electricity consumers.

Flex Alerts

A Flex Alert is issued by the ISO when the electricity grid is under stress because of generation or transmission outages, or from persistent hot temperatures.

Consumers are urged to voluntarily conserve electricity to help avoid more serious steps to protect the power grid, including local rotating outages.
