California is facing worsening power grid challenges on Monday and Tuesday.
According to the California Independent System Operator (ISO), demand for power is approaching record levels.
The grid operator called for even greater reductions in electricity use, with historic heat bearing down on the Golden State over the next several days.
"Starting tomorrow, this multi-day event is going to get much more intense," ISO CEO Elliot Mainzer said in a statement. "We are facing a load forecast of 48,817 megawatts and energy deficits between 2,000 and 4,000 megawatts for Monday, resulting in the highest likelihood of rotating outages we have seen so far this summer."
