The California Independent System Operator (CAISO) has released ISO Today, a free smartphone app that the operator says will give consumers 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.

When downloading from app stores, users will be asked whether they want to receive grid notifications, including flex alerts that signal when customers should try to reduce the strain on the power grid through voluntary conservation. The app, which is available for iPhone and Android smartphones, also displays CAISO's public meeting schedule.
