With triple-digit heat forecast for the three-day Labor Day weekend, the state’s grid operator is calling for afternoon and evening energy conservation as one way to make sure that the supply of power stays ahead of the demand.
The Flex Alert, called by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), has been issued for Saturday through Monday, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. A Flex Alert is an urgent call by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) to conserve electricity and shift demand to off-peak hours. Conservation can generate 1,000 megawatts or more in electricity savings statewide—equal to the output of two large power plants.
Customers are asked to reduce their energy use from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. each day, Saturday through Monday, when air conditioners drive consumption. By doing so, customers can help make sure the state has enough supply to meet demand for electricity.
Some helpful tips for conserving power:
Avoid using electrical appliances and devices from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. Put off tasks such as vacuuming, laundry, dish washing and computer time until after 9 p.m.
