Main Text

The ISO released a free smart phone app today to help stakeholders monitor ISO grid conditions and current events. ISO Today enables quick access to near real-time information regarding the supply and demand of electricity, including the amount of green energy helping to keep the lights on at any given time.

 

The ISO Today app is now available for iPhone (version 4 and up) and Android (version 2.2 and up) smart phones. Download on the Apple App Store or Google Play.

 

When downloading from app stores, users will be asked whether they want to receive grid notifications, including Flex Alerts that signal when customers should to do their part to reduce the strain on the power grid through voluntary conservation. Flex Alerts play a critical role during the peak summer months when demand for electricity can soar during heat waves. In particular, Flex Alerts are a key tool for helping mitigate the projected power gap caused by the ongoing shutdown of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in Southern California.

 

The app also displays the ISO public meeting schedule and makes it easy to set meetings in mobile phone calendars and receive automatic updates.

 

ISO Today enables the nonprofit grid operator's most popular web features at http://www.caiso.com to be available at the touch of a screen and is free via iPhone and Android app stores.
