Los Angeles, CA - Managers of California's power grid are asking for voluntary electricity conservation as forecasters predict more extreme heat statewide.

The California Independent System Operator predicts demand on the system will set a new all-time record Friday.

Consumers are asked to cut back on use of electricity between 1 p.m. and 10 p.m. when use of air conditioners is at its peak.

The National Weather Service warns that the heat will bring a high risk of heat-related illness, especially for the elderly, the infirm and children.

Forecasters also say the heat will be dangerous to anyone without proper hydration or adequate cooling.
