The following information was released by California ISO.
Editor’s note: at this time, the National Weather Service reports a temperature as 84 °F at Los Alamitos Army Airfield (KSLI) with a projected high of 90 °F.
The week-long heat wave in California is picking up steam again and the mercury is on the rise. A Flex Alert is in effect tomorrow and consumers are urged to reduce their energy use.
The ISO thanks consumers for their tremendous conservation efforts during last Friday’s Flex Alert. Nearly 1,000 megawatts in energy reduction helped maintain grid reliability. The level of conservation is equal to the output of two large power plants.
The main grid operator for California asks consumers to repeat efforts. Find Flex Alert tips at www.caiso.com.
