Glowing red lights indicate those machines shut down to conserve energy as control room supervisor Joe Samuels shuts down additional machines at the Farmers Rice Cooperative in West Sacramento, Calif., Thursday, Aug. 30, 2007. With temperatures throughout the state hovering around 100 degrees, the California Independent System Operator called for a reduction of the state's power usage. The rice coop was among 2,200 large Pacific Gas & Electric Co. customers with standing conservation arrangements to cut their energy use, helping to save an estimated 600 megawatts.
