California's power grid operator issued an alert urging consumers to conserve electricity on Wednesday as a heat wave baked the state, especially in the north. Electricity supplies statewide are expected to be tight because of high summer temperatures driving up demand, power plant outages, and reductions in the capacity of transmission lines, the California Independent System Operator (ISO) said in a statement. Power imports may also be limited Wednesday because of high temperatures in neighboring states, the ISO said.

California's power grid operator on Wednesday asked electric companies to restrict maintenance work on their generating facilities and transmission lines to help maintain reliability as a heat wave bakes the northern part of the state. The California Independent System Operator (ISO), which oversees California's bulk electric power system, said on its website that generation resources "may be inadequate" to meet demand during the daylight hours on Wednesday. The ISO forecast that peak demand would reach 45,931 megawatts on Wednesday and 45,428 MW on Thursday.
