ISO New England has launched a free mobile application that allows users to view New England power grid and wholesale pricing information.

The ISO to Go mobile app has been designed to broaden the accessibility of ISO New England information to a wider audience, including those with little or no familiarity with the regional power system, as well as those who actively participate in New England's wholesale electricity markets.

With the mobile app, users can view current power grid conditions; the five-minute load graph, which compares forecasted demand and real-time consumer demand; and an array of real-time wholesale electricity price data.

“This mobile application makes it easy for anyone, wherever they are, to check on grid conditions, follow wholesale electricity prices, see what fuels are being used to generate electricity and learn more about the region’s power system,” explains Gordon van Welie, president and CEO of ISO New England Inc.

The app is available in the Apple App store.
