California’s extreme heat is pushing the power grid to maximum capacity and the Plumas County Sheriff received word yesterday that Plumas is on the list of 10 counties that could have their power shut off at some point today, Sept. 5.
Cal ISO (a nonprofit public benefit corporation that manages the flow of electricity across the high-voltage, long-distance power lines that make up 80 percent of California’s power grid) will make the decision and ask utility companies to cut the power.
