[ARCHIVED] California Independent System Operator Issues Flex Alert for June 11

Due to high temperatures and high energy demand, the California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO) has issued a statewide Flex Alert calling for voluntary electricity conservation from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. today, June 11. Consumers are urged to conserve electricity especially during the afternoon when air conditioners typically are at peak use.

How you can help conserve electricity:

  • Set thermostat no lower than 78 degrees.
  • Turn off unused appliances and equipment.
  • Use electric fans instead of air conditioning when practical.
  • Shut off lights when leaving a room.
  • Close drapes and blinds to keep out direct sunlight during hot periods.
  • Avoid using evaporative coolers or humidifiers at the same time an air conditioner is running.
  • Operate swimming pool equipment and energy-intensive appliances, such as dishwashers, washing machines and dryers, during early-morning and late-evening hours.
  • Limit the opening and reopening of refrigerators, which are major users of electricity in most homes.
