Energy Alert Issued in California

by Greg Pollowitz

Governor Brown tweets:

California has issued a Flex Alert for tomorrow. Please conserve energy during this extremely hot weather.

But isn’t pro-green California supposed to be doing all the things associated with a “Flex Alert” already?

When a Flex Alert is called, what can I do?

At home and at work, do these three actions

Turn off all unnecessary lights, computers, and appliances.

Adjust your air conditioning thermostat to 78° or higher.

Use a fan when possible. Postpone using major appliances and equipment until after 6 p.m.

Hypocrites. Oh, and enjoy your “78° or higher” office/home with a fan tomorrow.
