With Power Grid Stretched Thin, CalChamber Urges Conservation

CalChamber is urging its members and all Californians to conserve energy—both commercially and personally—to help avoid power shutdowns during this time of unprecedented high temperatures.

Yesterday, the California Independent System Operator (ISO) issued a Stage 2 emergency order signaling that it may be necessary to implement rotating blackouts. Similar orders are expected today. The ISO has encouraged all Californians to conserve energy, particularly between the hours of 3 p.m.–9 p.m. during the heatwave. Conservation is necessary to relieve strain on the power grid which is struggling to maintain reliability during the extreme temperatures. Winds and fires in the state are also presenting challenges to the system.

“Consumers should always be prepared for potential power outages, both planned and unplanned during heat waves, especially in high temperatures that last multiple days,” the ISO said in an advisory Saturday.
