SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – With temperatures soaring to record-breaking triple digits, the California Independent System Operator Corporation has issued a Flex Alert for Monday and Tuesday in Northern California.
Residents are encouraged to reduce their energy use during peak hours in the late afternoon, when air conditioners usage is at its highest. Among some other tips to save energy, Cal-ISO also says residents to turn off unnecessary lights, avoid the use of major appliances before 6 p.m., and to adjust the air conditioners to 78 degrees or higher.
At the peak of power consumption, Cal-ISO says at least 47,000 MW of power is expected to be used each day of the Flex Alert.
