Flex Alert issued for California, SDG&E lists possible neighborhoods impacted

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego Gas and Electric says a statewide Flex Alert has been issued Sunday, calling for more energy conservation to help avoid the need for rolling blackouts.

California Independent System Operator (CA ISO) issued a Flex Alert for 3 to 10 p.m. daily through Wednesday, saying that if Californians don’t help conserve enough energy, “it’s likely we could experience additional rotating outages throughout the duration of this heatwave.”

SDG&E says the outages can last up to but no more than an hour.

The utility added that customers that experienced rolling outages on Friday and Saturday shouldn’t be impacted by possible one-hour outages on Sunday.

Neighborhoods in high fire threat areas that experience public safety shutoffs are not affected by rolling outages, SDG&E says.

During power shutoffs, SDG&E suggests customers turn off air conditioners and significantly reduce or avoid using other appliances and electric equipment. Refrigerator and freezer doors should also be kept closed and all unnecessary lighting should be turned off, health and safety permitting.

The company suggested customers also reduce their water use due to the need for electricity to pump and process water. For electric vehicle owners, charging should be delayed if possible until after the emergency shutoffs, SDG&E said.
