FOLSOM, Calif. – The California Independent System Operator’s (ISO) first Flex Alert of the year takes effect this afternoon, with consumers encouraged to voluntarily conserve electricity from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. to help maintain grid stability while California and much of the Southwest experience triple-digit temperatures the next several days.
Conservation Tips
• Before 5 p.m., “pre-cool” buildings by setting air conditioning thermostats lower
than usual; also, charge electronic devices and electric vehicles; and run
dishwashers, washers and dryers and other major appliances
• After 5 p.m., set thermostat at 78° or higher
• Cool with fans and draw drapes
• Turn off unnecessary lights and defer use of appliances

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.
