Flex Alert: Statewide energy alert issued due to heat wave

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The California Independent System Operator has issued a power warning, or Flex Alert, due to high temperatures across the state.

The alert calls for a voluntary electricity conservation, especially during the peak demand period between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. The alert is also for Wednesday.

The last time the ISO issued a statewide Flex Alert was exactly a year ago.

Conservation Tips from the ISO:

• Set thermostat at 78° or higher and turn off, if away
• Cool with fans and draw drapes
• Turn off unnecessary lights and appliances
• Use major appliances in morning or late evening
