Flex Alert in a effect for California starting Thursday


Well the hot weather is continuing.

Thursday, a Flex Alert will start for Californians. What does that mean? Well basically because the weather is so hot, there will be a surge in energy use. A ton of people will be indoors with the AC on.

So heres what you can do, when a Flex Alert is issued.

  • Setting the thermostat to 78 degrees
  • Turning off unnecessary lights
  • Using large appliances like washers and dryers during off-peak hours
  • Close blinds and drapes to keep rooms cool
  • "Pre-cool" homes overnight so they don't need as much energy to cool during the day
  • Use fans instead of AC when possible
