The California Independent System Operator (CAISO) continues to experience considerable challenges on the electric grid as the state’s record-breaking heatwave continues.
The grid operator is working to secure every megawatt available, however, consumers should be prepared for the likelihood of power outages during the late afternoon and evening hours. To help reduce stress on the power grid, please conserve energy as much as possible between 3:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Some examples of steps you can take:
If an outage occurs, avoid opening your refrigerator to keep food cold. If traffic lights are out, treat intersections as all-way stops. If you lose power and need to charge a medical device, please visit one of the cooling centers in your community.
