Expected Blackouts Call For Solar Back Up
The Labor Day weekend brought news of the Independent System Operator announcing a statewide Stage 2 emergency, which predicted rolling blackouts throughout California. On Monday, September 7, intense heat waves threatened the regional power grid with expected power outages throughout many counties.
Luckily, the Stage 2 emergency was lifted due to energy conservation by Californian Utility consumers. Californians are being encouraged to use fewer electrical appliances to avoid the risk of increased heat on the electrical grid, resulting in more fires.
