California ISO Conserve-O-Meter
With the continuing hot summer weather electrical energy has become a valuable commodity in all of California. Air conditioners and fans are running around the clock for many of us at home and at work, and the power grid in California is again feeling the strain of growing demand with a growing population. And as many AT readers are concerned about energy conservation, we think the California ISO website is a valuable tool in helping to decide when energy conservation is imperative to avoid rolling blackouts. With graphs and charts that show both current power demands, the predicted day’s peak demands, and even a “Conserve-O-Meter”, the California ISO outlook site is a great motivational tool to continue to “flex your power” for both yourself and your fellow Angelenos all trying to get through this seemingly hotter summer days.
