LMUD Issues Conservation Alert for All Customers

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

UPDATED: As of 1:30p.m., Wednesday, LMUD is no longer islanding with Honey Lake Power and is receiving power through PG&E’s Caribou transmission line. LMUD is lifting the conservation alert for most customers, except for those customers in the Eagle Lake are who are receiving power via the temporary generator.

___________________________
At approximately 2:00am Tuesday morning, PG&E notified Lassen Municipal Utility District that, due to a wildfire threatening the Beldon Powerhouse and the Caribou Transmission Line, the line had been de-energized and LMUD would island with Honey Lake Power until it was safe to re-energize.

Lassen Municipal Utility District is urging all of its customers to conserve energy during peak usage hours, 3:00p.m., to 8:00p.m., until the system is reconnected to the Caribou Line.

• Set your air conditioner thermostat to 78 degrees.
• Use a ceiling fan or other fans to cool your home.
• Turn your water heater down to 120 degrees.
• Avoid using appliances such as your dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer until after 8pm.
• Keep windows and doors closed to prevent the loss of cool air.
• Avoid agricultural and residential water pumping between the peak hours.
