Rotating Outages and Emergencies

What is a CAISO Energy Emergency Alert 3?

CAISO has updated its Alert and Emergency notices and is no longer utilizing stage 3 as a rotating outage. It is now called an Energy Emergency Alert 3.

An EEA3 outage typically lasts one hour. We manage and rotate the outage across groups of customers throughout the service territory to protect the integrity of our electric system while limiting the inconvenience to any one customer or community.

For more than 15 years we have maintained a 99.98% Service Reliability rating for our customers (Check the CPUC's Electric Service Reliability Annual Reports). Predicting electricity demands and generation availability is at best an approximation. The Cal-ISO's forecasts and system status change quickly, causing our real-time electric grid management plan to change also. We make every effort to keep information posted on this Web site accurate.
