California Power Grid Operator Braces For Long Heat Wave

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Operators of California’s power grid expect to issue calls for voluntary conservation of electricity during a prolonged heat wave building over the West and they warn that there could be energy shortages if conditions worsen. Excessive-heat warnings are expanding to all of Southern California and northward into the Central Valley on Wednesday, with unusually high temperatures spreading through Northern California later in the week. The California Independent System Operator says it is taking measures to bring all available energy resources online, including issuing an order restricting maintenance. The peak load for electricity demand in California is projected to exceed 48,000 megawatts on Monday, the highest of the year.
