Press release from Energy Providers of Southern California:
Due to rising temperatures, it is crucially important that energy saving practices be observed by Southern California residents in order to help stop energy shortages. 
To provide their support, The Energy Providers of Southern California just announced their campaign to encourage conservation, Conserve Energy SoCal, and have created the following helpful tips to educate the community on energy conservation — please feel free to share with your readers to help us work together to help prevent blackouts.
  1. Set your AC to 78°f when you’re not home.
  2. Reduce the temperature on your water heater.
  3. Turn lights off when you leave the room.
  4. Use a power strip; turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use.
  5. Air dry dishes instead of using dishwasher’s drying cycle.
  6. Take short showers instead of baths and use low-flow shower heads.
  7. Only run full loads of clothes or dishes.
  8. Wash clothes in cold water.
  9. Keep windows and doors closed when heating or cooling your home.
  10. Clean or change air filters regularly.
