Grid operator: California’s Energy Sufficient Amid Heat Wave

LOS ANGELES (AP) – California is projected to have enough energy to meet electrical demand but residents may be asked to voluntarily conserve electricity this week as record-breaking heat blankets the West. The California Independent System Operator says the grid is stable Wednesday and there is no expectation of rotating power outages. Forecasts also show enough reserves to cover demand Thursday evening but the grid operator says Californians should be vigilant in case there’s need for a Flex Alert as solar energy production drops off. Summerlike heat arrived with spring still on the calendar as a dome of high pressure spread over the West.
