Gas Company Asks Consumers to Conserve

SoCalGas asks customers to "Dial It Down" today through Thursday morning in
response to a cold snap expected over the next few days. The natural-gas
supplier's media information spokesperson stated a strain on the system,
projected from a significant increase in heating and hot water demands, was
a natural outcome, given California's dependence on natural gas imported
across state lines or stored in facilities. The usage reduction period began
Monday and ends on January 24 at 7 a.m.

The gas company urged customers to consider its Smart Therm Program, which
automatically adjusts thermostats during such times of peak energy use.
Before Smart Therm initiates, SoCalGas sends notifications that a "smart
thermostat company" will reduce their home's heating. For those disinclined
to allow this, SoCalGas offers tips to reduce natural gas use such as
keeping windows and doors closed and sealed, washing clothes with cold
water, and setting thermostats lower temperature when leaving the house.
