#AceBreakingNews – (CNN) — Millions across Nevada and California are urged to reduce electricity consumption during the holiday weekend as a heat wave continues to smother several states in the West, where crews are also battling wildfires.
The latest weather system has put more than 40 million people across California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Montana and Idaho under excessive heat warnings through Labor Day weekend.
“The abnormally warm airmass will likely tie or break widespread high/low temperature records from the Northern Rockies to the Great Basin and down into southern California this weekend,” the National Weather Service said.
Temperatures are forecast to soar to near 110 degrees on Sunday over interior sections of California while parts of Montana will see high temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees above average on Saturday, according to the weather service.
Power provider NV Energy, which serves more than 1.5 million homes and businesses throughout Nevada, has asked residents to cut back on their electricity use between the hours of 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. to avoid straining the power grid.
The provider also asked residents to avoid using large appliances including dishwashers and washing machines between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.
Similarly in California, millions are advised to reduce electricity use between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. Saturday for the fourth day in a row.
The California Independent System Operator — which manages 80% of the state’s power grid — issued yet another Flex Alert on Friday, asking residents to be mindful of their electricity use.
“With increased heat in the forecast for California and the West, the power grid operator is again expecting high electricity demand throughout Labor Day weekend and into next week, primarily from air conditioning use,” the operator explained.
The operator also asked residents to pre-cool their homes before 4 p.m., set their thermostats to 78 during conservation hours and to avoid charging their electric vehicles.
“This prolonged heat wave will impact the 20 most populous cities on the West Coast, including even coastal locations, like San Francisco and Los Angeles, which often escape the intense heat,” CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam said.
