SCE: Power System 'Challenged' - Keep Conserving

Southern California Edison spokesman Paul Grigaux reports that the power company's system has been "challenged" over the past five days and there have been equipment failures and power outages. Since Saturday, the utility has replaced 369 transformers, though that is far fewer than in two past heat waves.

SCE also reports that its year-to-date peak consumption of 23,055 megawatts was reached on Monday, and, of course, the company would like you to continue reducing power usage between noon and 6 p.m. - the hours of peak energy usage.
