SDG&E’s Summer Outlook

Electricity Demands and Summer Outages



When electricity demand peaks this summer, there could be up to 14 days of outages in the Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties. If an outage occurs, it’s for a limited amount of time per event. Outages could stem from natural gas service curtailments that may be large enough to force CAISO to curtail electricity due to the uncertainty of the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility. California’s power grid is interconnected which means something that happens in the north can ultimately affect us in the south. This is why we’re taking precautions now to prepare for the upcoming summer months. We’re working to ensure enough power is secured to meet the needs of the region and will be closely coordinated with CAISO for the benefit of everyone.
