SoCalGas Lifts "SoCalGas Advisory"

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced that, effective immediately, it has lifted the "SoCalGas Advisory" to all customers and the system-wide curtailment watch issued to its noncore customers, including electric generation plants. The Advisory and curtailment watch were issued December 18 in response to cold weather conditions in the Southwestern United States and SoCalGas' service territory.

"On behalf of SoCalGas, I'd like to thank all of our customers who took action to conserve natural gas during this Advisory. Working with our customers and suppliers, we were able to manage our system to deliver reliable heating and electricity to our region during this recent cold snap," said Lisa Alexander, vice president for customer solutions and communications. "As we lift the Advisory, I want to remind our customers that it is very early in the winter season, and with the limited availability of Aliso Canyon, we may face more of these types of challenges this winter. Conservation should be part of everyone's daily routine, and I encourage customers to visit to learn more about our conservation tips, rebate programs, and other ways to manage bills this winter."

The California Public Utilities Commission ordered the creation of the "SoCalGas Advisory" program to help address state agencies' concerns about regional energy reliability this winter due to the moratorium on injection operations at Aliso Canyon.
