The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) offers a free application for
Texans in the ERCOT region to monitor Real-Time grid conditions and learn ways
to save energy. What's available: • Current electric demand and operating
reserves • Real-Time wholesale power prices •...
Chart with no numbers on vertical axis
How can you’ve a chart on your home page with no numbers on vertical axis? Such a poor design. It would be great to see more info such as comparison with last week or last year so that one can see the trend ..
Need more info
Need to have axis labels on the chart. Be nice if you could see real time what is producing the power broken down by nuclear, natural gas, coal, wind, solar. And see the tends of the historical data. As it the app stands right now it’s functional but nothing special.
Includes too much irrelevant data. I only care about my loadzone, not all of them. I only need to see prices for one. Why does the app show all? Who is this built for that this is helpful? Waste of time.
Lost current demand number
With new release, the current demand value is not shown. What happened to that?
Why isn’t there a 5min price? Why only 15mins prices? Would be great to see forecasted wind and actual wind output on a chart.
Finally an ERCOT app! Love it. Thanks guys.
Needed for heatwaves
Thank the app gods!
Hopefully this achievement by ERCOT will show other ISOs & RTOs the benefits of having mobile apps with system wide alerts. I have a few requests and suggestions, please add nodal pricing points and ultimately a simple DB query function for source and sink of PTPs as you can't mouse over those points on the Web Contour Map. Also, a list of scheduled outages and line work would easily be scraped off your market data website. Or if it's easier list the DA congestion costs built into DA prices. Then finally I see a huge synergy with my firm and the retail ESCOs out there and don't want to give away any proprietary info but I am able to generate revenues for ERCOT by providing customers the available 3rd party providers through my DOE funded efforts!
Received an e-mail from the State of Texas State Operations Center (SOC) at work today with the press release for this app. Downloaded it and am fairly impressed; I like transparency when it comes to utilities and enjoy having situation awareness. This app gives usage and forecast usage, as well as great tips on how to conserve energy (AND save money). I'm looking forward to what types of notifications it will send; according to the press release, when ERCOT forecasts issues with high demand, they will notify app users ... and users can reference their conservation tips. More features could be added if utility companies/cooperatives share their outage data or other pertinent info with ERCOT.
Functional but could use a Design overhaul
Overall good delivery of Actual usage vs forecast data, but just needs a prettier way of delivering to the user.
First class App! Congrats!
I used v1 of this app, and I can't believe the massive improvement with the new release! This rebuilt app is actually interesting, usable and informative in this latest incarnation. You can't even fairly call it an "update" - more like a complete do-over. Thanks to the team that built this improved version I can actually see what's happening with demand and conditions, wholesale prices, alerts/notices and more, plus it's super easy on the eyes (the old app was, well, ugly). Nice UI! I especially like the graph / gauge home page switch. Thanks ERCOT!
Awesome App. Highly Recommend
What can I say. Learning about the Texas power grid was never on the top of my list, but seeing how much attention ERCOT has put into designing this app for the public has changed my tune for good. I love the interactive push notifications that allow me to take action on conserving energy as well as see who else has joined the cause. Not to mention the app is absolutely beautiful to look at. Way to go! Highly recommend!
This app is really interesting and easy to use. This is a big improvement from the last version.
Not bad. Clean and concise.
I see the "Normal Conditions" banner at the top. I assume that banner will change to reflect abnormal conditions. Looking forward to seeing the alerts in action.
Much more informative and beautiful!
Hope it's performance will be better--faster!
