Light & Water - Customer Service

[ARCHIVED] Statewide Flex Alert Issued for Friday, August 14

The California Independent System Operator (ISO) has issued a statewide Flex Alert, a call for voluntary electricity conservation, from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14. Electricity conservation is encouraged from 3 PM to 10 PM to relieve stress on the power grid caused by the forecasted heatwave, but at this time no rotating power outages are anticipated in Azusa.

Azusa Light & Water encourages its customers to conserve electricity, especially during the late afternoon and early evening, when the grid is most stressed due to higher demand and solar energy production falling. Costumers are also asked to turn off unnecessary lights, use major appliances before 3 p.m. and after 10 p.m., and set air conditioner thermostats to 78 degrees or higher.
