More Record Power Usage

For the third day in a row, Californians set a new record peak electricity usage Wednesday.

Officials expect a fourth record day Thursday.

The good news, according to the California Independent System Operator, is that there have been no electrical emergencies so far.

Hotter-than-average temperatures and the resulting use of air conditionere are expected to drive up the demand for power.

The ISO is encouraging customers to conserve electricity wherever possible again Thursday.
