Due to the extreme heat this afternoon, the California ISO has called a Flex Alert. Flex Alerts are voluntary calls for consumers to conserve electricity.

They are asking for everyone in California to take three simple actions:

• Turn off all unnecessary lights
• Postpone using major appliances until after 9:00 p.m.
• Set your air conditioning to 78° or higher
