SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2014 – Due to multiple days of record high temperatures causing increased electric demand and ongoing fires threatening transmission infrastructure, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) again urges customers to conserve energy today, health permitting.

As SDG&E crews continue damage assessment, repairs and restoration efforts in fire-affected communities, safety is SDG&Es top priority, and conservation is important to ensure reliability of the electric system throughout the region.

SDG&E encourages the following conservation tips:

o Turn off all lights, appliances or other electrical equipment that are not being used.

o Turn up the thermostat in your home or office (health permitting) to 78 degrees or above. If possible, use fans instead of air conditioning.

o Do not use pool pumps or major appliances, such as dishwashers or clothes washers/dryers.

SDG&E is a regulated public utility that provides safe and reliable energy service to 3.4 million consumers through 1.4 million electric meters and 861,000 natural gas meters in San Diego and southern Orange counties. The utilitys area spans 4,100 square miles. SDG&E is committed to creating ways to help customers save energy and money every day. SDG&E is a subsidiary of Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE), a Fortune 500 energy services holding company based in San Diego. Connect with SDG&Es Customer Contact Center at 800-411-7343.
