New ISO Today App Includes EIM Prices and Market Notices

FOLSOM, CA--(Marketwired - June 12, 2015) - The California Independent System Operator Corp. (ISO) today released an updated version of its mobile app, ISO Today, which includes enhanced price maps for the Energy Imbalance Market (EIM), Market Notices and social media posts.

The new price map now includes fifteen-minute and real time dispatch prices at thousands of points on the grid that includes those in the new western regional Energy Imbalance Market.

Originally launched in February 2013, the ISO Today app provides information on current solar and wind generation, as well as weather conditions in and around California. Hourly renewable energy production for the current and previous day also give the user data on ISO's progress towards integrating green energy.
