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.
