CA ISO issues stage 2 alert (Here we go again)
The California Independent System Operator issued a stage 2 alert for California at 1:30pm PDT. This means electric power reserves have dropped below 5%. An unplanned shutdown of a nuclear power plant in Washington has left the western grid short of power, combined with higher than normal temperatures. "Voluntary" curtailment of power is effect for the rest of the afternoon.
