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.
