Chill brings ‘Dial It Down' Alert
SOUTHLAND – (INT) - Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) has issued a “Dial It Down” Alert.
As cold winter weather gets a foothold, Southern Californians are being asked to conserve natural gas until further notice.
Customers should conserve energy by reducing natural gas use, specifically in the evenings when it is typically at peak use. During periods of cold weather, local demand for natural gas for home heating, hot water, and cooking can increase rapidly and put a strain on the natural gas system.
Dial It Down Alerts are similar to Flex Alerts issued by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) that call on customers to voluntarily conserve electricity for a specific period of time.
SoCalGas is asking customers to re-set their thermostat to 68 degrees when home and 55 degrees when away.
