PG&E and high temperature.
Don’t use laundry dryer when temperature is higher than 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Use the natural energy from the sun to dry up your laundry. Don’t use comforter during high temperature. Because dryer and comforter makes you use even more electricity, you would let that aircon of yours running more to get the cooler temperature you want in your house. That’s not minimizing.
When temperature gets too hot there’s a chance that power plants or transformers will give up or shut down because of excessive heat.
What will you do then? Especially when you have children at home.
Please minimize.
When temperature gets 90 degrees Fahrenheit or even more higher for months air and grounds transportation should be lockdown for two weeks at a time for the temperature to subside.
Airplane engines heats up 120 degrees and more while moving plus vehicles that are stock in traffic two to four hours a day spread heat in our area.
We are cooking human being during this very hot time.
Lockdown transportation for two weeks should not hurt the economy. And this must be mandatory.
Food budget for two weeks should be manageable.
Please minimize.
