Due to the continued high temperatures, the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) has issued a Flex Alert for all of California for Thursday September 9th 2021 from 4 p.m. –9 p.m. Here is an ENERGIZED by Edison story with energy conservation tips and a link to CAISO’s news release.
“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,” CAISO noted in its release.
Southern California Edison is asking customers to reduce electricity use on Wednesday, September 8 from 4–9 p.m. after the California Independent System Operator issued a Flex Alert the afternoon of Tuesday, September 7.
Energy conservation is critical to maintaining grid reliability and service.
SCE recommends that customers:
