Flex Alert Issued for Wednesday Due to Heat & Tight Power Supply Consumers Urged to Reduce Energy Use From 4-9 p.m. to Protect Grid Reliability

Folsom, CA...The California Independent System Operator (ISO) has issued a statewide Flex Alert calling for voluntary electricity conservation Wednesday, Sept. 8, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., due to predicted high energy demand and tight supplies on the power grid.





With above-normal temperatures in the forecast for much of California and the West, the power grid operator is predicting an increase in electricity demand, primarily from air conditioning use. The increased demand can make electricity supplies tight and strain the power grid, making conservation essential.

During the Flex Alert time period, consumers are asked to lower their thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, if health permits, and take other voluntary measures that include avoiding the use of major appliances and unnecessary lights.

To take full advantage of all available supply, the ISO has also issued a restricted maintenance operation (RMO) for tomorrow from noon to 9 p.m., notifying ISO participants to avoid taking grid assets offline for routine maintenance until the RMO is lifted.

Conserving electricity during the late afternoon and early evening is crucial because that is when the grid is most stressed due to higher demand and declining solar energy production.

In the past, reducing energy use during a Flex Alert has helped operators keep the power grid stable during tight supply conditions and prevented further emergency measures, including rotating power outages.

For information on Flex Alerts, and to get more electricity conservation tips, visit FlexAlert.org.

Conservation Tips
Tips before a Flex Alert:
 Pre-cool home by setting the thermostat to as low as 72 degrees
 Use major appliances:
o Washer and dryer
o Dishwasher
o Oven and stove for pre-cooking and preparing meals
 Adjust blinds and drapes to cover windows
Tips during a Flex Alert from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.:
 Set thermostat to 78 degrees or higher, if health permits
 Avoid using major appliances
 Turn off all unnecessary lights

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.

      This Crap all ends with the RE-Call of Newsom. . .

      California deserves so much more than Newsome, or for that matter, any liberal can offer. . .

      Why do we elect liberal Democrats - they screw things up so bad it takes a decade to unwind their disasters. . .
