In order to lessen the burden on the state's electrical infrastructure at a time when temperatures are continuing to rise to near triple digits

a Flex Alert will be in force on Sunday for the fifth straight day.

In its first Flex Alert of the week, the California Independent System Operator, which oversees the state's electrical system,

urged citizens to use less electricity from 4 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday. Since Wednesday, additional Flex Alerts have been sent out for the same times every day.

The state has avoided forced power outages as a result of the notifications thus far.

The peak power demand on Thursday, according to Cal-ISO, was 47,357 megawatts, the highest level since September 2017.

Monday, and Tuesday, the EIA predicted that demand may be higher again, with Tuesday's prediction at 49,000 megawatts.

According to Cal-ISO, "the ISO is working with state agencies and market players to bring all available energy supplies online 

Cal-ISO has issued a warning that additional Flex Alerts are likely to be published throughout the heat wave, which is anticipated to last at least until Tuesday and probably longer in some places.
