August 21, 2017 — Great American Eclipse (Total Solar Eclipse)
On August 21, the first total solar eclipse visible in the contiguous United States since 1979 will temporarily darken skies across the country. In California, the eclipse will impact energy supply by reducing solar energy supplies for more than two hours, and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is asking for local government’s help. Visit www.caleclipse.org for more information.
Residents are asked to do at least ONE thing for the sun during the eclipse, such as turning air conditioning thermostats up 2 to 4 degrees, shutting down three power strips, and avoid charging electric vehicles during the period from 9:00 am to noon on August 21 – visit www.CalEclipse.org, and click on “Pledge” for more information.
