Pardon the pun, but we’re charged up! Why? Because we’ve made BIG changes to ISO to Go!
ISO New England launched its original mobile app back in 2012—eons ago in the technology world. While ISO to Go has gained a steady following of energy and data enthusiasts over the past six years, it was time to make the app even more valuable to more people—from market participants who need minute-to-minute pricing detail to New England residents who may just want to follow what’s happening on the grid on the hottest summer days and coldest winter nights.
Learn more about the new enhancements and features that will keep you up to date on wholesale electricity prices, electricity demand, fuel mix, and grid conditions in New England.
ISO to Go 2.0 still has the same up-to-the-minute power system information you rely on. But we’ve added extra data that app users asked for—and made it easier to find.
The app’s price map now includes both day-ahead and real-time prices for each of region’s eight zones and the New England Hub, a reference price for electric energy in New England. It also displays prices at the five interchanges where electricity is imported from, or exported to, our neighboring regions. And you can find your local day-ahead and real-time wholesale energy prices using GPS or choosing from a list.
You’ll now see a breakdown of all three of the components that make up wholesale energy prices for each location: The New England energy price, transmission congestion, and line losses. Prices are calculated this way to represent the true cost for delivering power by location (and why they’re called locational marginal prices or LMPs).
Other new features include a rolling 12-hour pricing chart for each load zone and the hub and binding constraints updates.
Demand curves provide a simple visual of New England’s consumer demand for electricity right now and how it tracks with the forecast. With our new ISO to Go 2.0 demand curve, more detail on real-time regional demand is available throughout the day. And you can now search demand for previous days.
Need to know about system conditions today, tomorrow, or what’s forecasted for the next seven days? Now you can see key data from the ISO’s morning report, 3-day demand forecast, and 7-day capacity forecast.
