The California Independent System Operator (CAISO) has called a Statewide FlexAlert for today, seeking statewide energy conservation from 3 p.m. until 10 p.m., as the National Weather Service predicts high heat across the State.
The FlexAlert is a call for voluntary electricity conservation, in anticipation of higher than normal electricity demand from due to anticipated high temperatures statewide.
The FlexAlert is happening at the same time that Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) has declared a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event in Northern California. This is the first time that both a PSPS and FlexAlert have occurred at the same time.
