California ISO Updates, Improves ISO Today Mobile App

The California Independent System Operator (ISO) today introduced an updated and improved version of its mobile app, ISO Today, to include a Net Demand chart, an extended calendar to display important ISO events and speedier emergency alert notification system.

“The ISO Today mobile app improves the way we communicate with our stakeholders, businesses and residents of the West, who all have a stake in our energy future,” said Steve Berberich, President and CEO of the ISO. “When energy consumption grows during the summer, we may need to call upon residents and business owners to conserve power to help maintain grid reliability and keep electricity flowing. This mobile app will promptly display Flex Alert emergency notifications when conservation is needed.”

Among the new additions are a net demand chart, which shows current electricity demand without wind and solar generation, and an enhanced events calendar that displays entries up to three months in advance.

The ISO Today app features the popular chart displaying the location and hourly production of the state’s renewable energy resources to help track renewable interconnections. Also quite popular is the day ahead wholesale energy price map.

Download the ISO Today mobile app now at the Apple App Store, Google Play or by updating your app settings. Version 2.1 of ISO Today is compatible with iOS6 and Android 2.3 and up for smart phones, tablets and iPads. Android devices with older operating systems must use app version 1.0.
