    Uh, oh! SDG&E calls on customers to conserve energy from natural gas, electricity

    SAN DIEGO - As a winter storm brought cold temperatures and mountain snow to San Diego County Saturday, San Diego Gas & Electric called on its customers to conserve energy – both from natural gas and electricity – to ensure supplies will last.

    "Extremely cold weather is forecasted for the western portion of the U.S. this weekend, and as a result, natural gas supplies throughout Southern California are limited," SDG&E officials said in a statement.

    Local power plants are fueled by natural gas, and using less electricity lessens the impact on the natural gas supply, according to the utility.

    • Utility officials recommended customers lower furnace thermostats three to five degrees, health permitting; use a programmable thermostat to help automatically regulate temperatures; keep heating systems tuned up by cleaning and replacing filters and clearing out heating vents and furnace registers; caulk and weather strip drafty windows and doors; keep shades open during the day and close them at night; leave pools and spas unheated; and to turn off unnecessary lights and avoid using major appliances.

      I have never heard of such a thing. Where is all the excess Natural Gas then? Don't we have an oversupply problem?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
