CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- The Alberta Electric System Operator is asking all Albertans to voluntarily reduce their use of electricity.
Due to the hot weather, low wind and generators being offline, the electricity system is operating at near full capacity.
Albertans can voluntarily reduce their electricity usage by:
-- Turning off unnecessary lights and electrical appliances; -- Minimizing the use of air conditioning by closing blinds, shades or drapes during the hottest part of the day; and, -- Avoiding the use of major power-consuming equipment such as dishwashers and washers and dryers during the energy conservation period.
Albertans are encouraged to follow us on Twitter @theaeso or visit www.poweringalbertans.ca for timely updates.
As an independent system operator, the AESO leads the safe, reliable and economic planning and operation of Alberta's interconnected power system. The AESO also facilitates Alberta's fair, efficient and openly competitive wholesale electricity market, which in 2013 had 176 participants and approximately $8 billion in annual energy transactions.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.
