Although I offer widgets without charge, I need your financial support to put much time and effort into these goodies. Please make a small donation via PayPal by clicking the button to the right. Thanks for your support!
Cal-ISO displays the current California utility power usage and forecasts as published by the California Independant System Operator, a non-profit charged with managing utility power delivery in the state. The graph shows the current usage and capacity, as well as a fine-grained forecast for the next few hours, and a general forecast for the next day.
Clicking on the "Power Status" caption above the graph opens the Cal-ISO web page, where you can find out much more about California's amazingly complex power distribution brokerage. The widget itself is handy for keeping an eye on potential power shortages, which in the past have resulted in rolling blackouts and other unpleasant (e.g. Enron) experiences.
