    California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday signed an executive order
    that will allow the state to ramp up electricity supply as its power
    grid braces for stress during a weeklong heatwave.

    The California Independent System Operator has warned that stress on
    the energy grid could lead to blackouts and called for consumer
    conservation between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.

    In its Flex Alert, California ISO said it was encouraging consumers to
    pre-cool their homes and use major appliances and charge electric
    vehicles and electronic devices before 4 p.m.


    This idiot Newsom bans gas powered vehicles in California, and the
    electric power grid can't handle the present load.

    Just think of 31 million automobile batteries charging. That doesn't
    include trucks, buses and other vehicles.

    California's biggest problem is over population, caused by its
    sanctuary policy for illegal immigrants, but the democrats can't see
    that, or won't admit it.
