Overload (1979) is a novel by Arthur Hailey, concerning the electricity production industry in California and the activities of the employees and others involved with Golden State Power and Light, a fictional California public service company. The novel is described from the point of view of vice-president of Golden State Power and Light, Mr. Nimrod Goldman, often mentioned as Nim.

The geographic area of service of the fictional electric utility, Golden State, matches the actual Northern California footprint of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The plots follow many of the issues of the day, including race relations, corporate politics, business ethics, terrorism and journalism.
