Californians and their new governor are playing Santa to utilities this year when it comes to holiday lights. As the memory of energy crisis?era winter blackouts fades?and attempts by the California Energy Commission to enact outdoor lighting conservation have yet to begin?light is pitching into the night sky and onto the Capitol lawn. Though Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has given a nod to conservation, the Christmas tree at the Capitol lights up for seven hours every evening, compared to the measly three hours a night afforded by former governor Gray Davis during the holiday season. As <i>Energy Circuit<\/i> goes to press, the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) is forecasting a 5,000 MW jump in electricity use between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. ?Some of that is outdoor lights,? said Gregg Fishman, CAISO spokesperson.
