The Flex Alert issued by the California Independent System Operator, which manages the statewide power grid, will take effect at 2 p.m. and will remain in force until 9 p.m. "The forecast peak usage for Tuesday and Wednesday is expected to exceed 47,000 megawatts each day in California ISO's s service territory, which serves roughly 80 percent of electricity customers".

For more electricity conservation tips, visit the ISO's Flex Alert website at http://www.flexalert.org/saveenergy.

This week's expected peaks would be more than 90% of CAISO's all-time peak demand of 50,270 MW, set on July 24, 2006.

With temperatures reaching triple digits Tuesday and Wednesday, the California Independence System Operation (ISO) issued a statewide Flex Alert, encouraging residents conserve electricity.

"Temperatures inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can quickly rise to life-threatening levels", a statement from NWS read.
