CAISO is seeking backstop energy to deal with rising summer demand, which can be driven by increased usage of air conditioning.

California's grid operator expects to call upon its backstop energy procurement authority to deal with hot weather and high energy demand this summer and into fall, after state regulators requested the measure, citing a series of factors including "unprecedented climate change-driven heat events."
