Department of Market Monitoring Quarterly Market Issues and Performance Report Posted, Web Conference 11/06/18


The California ISO Department of Market Monitoring has scheduled a stakeholder web conference on Nov. 6, 2018 to discuss the analysis and findings of its third quarter 2018 Market Issues and Performance Report, available on the ISO website at


The third quarter 2018 Market Issues and Performance Report includes coverage of market performance in both the day-ahead and energy imbalance market. Highlights include price increases and record high day-ahead prices driven in part by high natural gas prices, particularly at the SoCal Citygate trading hub. Bid cost recovery payments increased to about $88 million, the highest amount in any quarter since 2011. Real-time imbalance offset charges increased to $79 million and costs for ancillary services increased to $77 million. Congestion revenue rights auction revenues were $41.5 million less than payments made in the third quarter to non-load-serving entities purchasing these rights.
