Despite the current energy crisis, major issues and sporting events are still going on throughout California. On Wednesday, thousands of people flocked to Oracle Park in San Francisco for a rock concert, and the L.A. The Rams will host the NFL season opener on Thursday.
According to Breitbart News, California is currently experiencing its seventh day in a row of "Flex Alerts," during which time users are urged to save electricity in the late afternoon and evening. On Thursday, there could be an energy emergency, which could lead to blackouts.
A huge quantity of electricity may be consumed for lighting, sound amplification, special effects, as well as for supplying vending and other services to tens of thousands of spectators at large stadium events, however it appears that this does not apply in those cases.
SoFi Stadium, where the Rams will play the Buffalo Bills, is an outdoor stadium that was built to rely on winds from the neighbouring ocean for cooling, according to Fox News. As a result, it does not employ traditional air conditioning. However, the stadium's lights, screens, and scoreboards will still consume a significant amount of energy.
Although it began at 4:30 p.m., the Oracle Park concert, which featured Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Poison, Mötley Crüe, and Def Leppard, was also held outside. immediately as the "Flex Alert" started, and it continued after the alert ended. Visual effects featured big screens, lights, and laser beams in addition to loud speakers.
