Back in the summer of 2020 in August there were rolling blackouts leaving over 400,000 homes without power as the energy supplies came up short. Rolling blackouts lasted approximately 2 to 3 hours.

Electricity rates have soared in the West due to high temperatures and people running their air conditioning.

Power prices for Tuesday in the U.S. West soared to their highest levels since February as homes and businesses cranked up air conditioners to escape the approaching heatwave. Power traded on Monday for Tuesday jumped to $339 per megawatt hour (MWh) at Palo Verde hub in Arizona and $189 in SP-15 in Southern California, reports Reuters News

California ISO anticipates power demand peaking at 36,118 MW today and 40,839 MW on Tuesday, the highest peaks since October 2020; the grid operator says it currently has 48,110 MW of supply to meet Monday’s peak.

“Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.”

“Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9 1 1. “ Source Weather.com
