Voluntary Power Conservation
Encouraged in California Reduce Your Electricity Between 4 pm - 9 pm
Given the likelihood of high temperatures in the state the rest of the summer, the California Independent System Operator has issued a Flex Alert calling for voluntary electricity conservation. Consumers are urged to reduce electricity use, especially during the late afternoon and early evening when demand is highest; prior to 4 p.m. is considered to be ideal for usage.
Here are tips on what residents can do before 4 p.m.:
Cool your home/workspace by lowering your thermostat. Use major appliances, such as your dishwasher or washer and dryer. Close window coverings. Charge electronic devices and electric vehicles.
Using energy in the middle of the day reduces the likelihood of an outage and increases the likelihood that energy supplies are produced from renewable solar resources. During peak hours, from 4-9 p.m., consumers are encouraged to manage their electricity usage by doing the following:
Set thermostats to 78 degrees or higher. Avoid using major appliances. Turn off all unnecessary lights. INFO
Come and make an impact in your neighborhood. Please check out any of our committees or contact any GTLNC Boardmember to hear what value you can add just by sharing your time and energy with the GTLNC.
