LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30, 2016—Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced a new conservation notification program designed to reduce consumers’ natural gas use to lower the risk of possible natural gas and electricity shortages this winter. Beginning December 1, 2016, a "SoCalGas Advisory," will be issued by SoCalGas under specific conditions, such as when demand for natural gas is projected to potentially exceed supply. Similar to the "Flex Alert" program used by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), which issues calls for consumers to reduce electricity usage during high-demand periods, SoCalGas Advisories will ask customers to reduce their natural gas use. The program was launched to help address state agencies’ concerns about regional energy reliability this winter due to the moratorium on injection operations at Aliso Canyon.
