So what is a “Flex Alert”? Under most conditions, SDG&E is able to manage our supply and demand locally through our own demand response programs.
Sometimes, in severe emergencies, the California Independent System Operator (ISO) will call for a statewide Flex Alert – it lets all Californians know that conservation is needed everywhere, not just in our area.
It could even happen when there are local emergencies in other parts of the state, and we are asked to help our neighbors to the north.
