Stephanie McCorkle with the ISO says a statewide conservation effort is necessary even though the natural gas shortage is only affecting supply to Southern California.
“We’re asking northern as well as Southern California customers to reduce their use of electricity as well as natural gas until after 10 o’clock tonight,” McCorkle said.
McCorkle says this Flex Alert is unusual because demands on the grid aren’t as normally as high in the winter.
The gas shortage is a “stage one” electrical emergency, which means reserves may have to be used. In a stage three emergency power outages may occur.
