The DMV said it will close all of its offices statewide at 3 p.m. each day through Wednesday in order to conserve energy.

Customers with and without appointments will be admitted until approximately 2:30 p.m., as time and space allow, to accommodate the 3 p.m. shutdown, according to the DMV.

Those with appointments between 2:30 and 5 p.m. will be contacted and rescheduled after the statewide heatwave.

“We are doing our part to protect the state’s power grid by reducing our energy consumption,” said DMV Director Steve Gordon.

Customers are encouraged to avoid an office visit by going online to take care of their DMV needs. Many services are now available 24/7 at
