About California ISO

Situational intelligence became the centerpiece of the California ISO’s new state-of-the-art control center to help ensure a crisis scenario of this magnitude does not happen in California.  Quick glances at the geospatial displays on the 80 x 6.5 foot video wall that fronts the control center, allow operators and dispatchers to instantly detect and act on anomalies, or simply gain the assurance that everything is in fact running normally.
