[ARCHIVED] Use Caution; Conserve Electricity and Water with Excessive Heat Conditions

The City of Brea has prepared a checklist to help you prepare for hot weather conditions. With a week-long heat wave peaking between today and Friday and triple-digit temperatures in many areas, Southern California Edison (SCE) reminds its customers of the importance of energy conservation. The heavy demand could also cause equipment failure, which could lead to outages for some SCE customers. High winds have also compounded dangers. Beware of any downed power lines and stay clear!

With some customers using more energy in the evenings this week, especially air conditioning, the added demand can put a strain on SCE's equipment. Without the opportunity for SCE's equipment to cool off, transformers and other equipment could fail.

SCE personnel, who include restoration and repair crews, are responding to outages as they are reported. The company is also taking steps to ensure that crews are available to immediately respond to outages.

SCE has postponed a number of scheduled maintenance outages, but will continue to conduct some that are critical. Conducting these critical maintenance outages helps lessen the possibility of equipment failure, which could lead to repair outages lasting longer and affecting more customers than maintenance outages.

Please do your share to conserve energy.
