Finally!!

Finally an ERCOT app! Love it. Thanks guys.

Almost perfect!

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!

Good Info, needs a few tweaks

Xeiran

Clean and concise info, easy to understand system conditions, decent ( if somewhat generic) conservation advice.

Needed Tweaks:
1. Change the color or linetype of the forecast peak - the solid bright blue line almost completely obscures the pale green color of the current system load line, making it very hard to tell at a glance what current load is. +1star if done.
2. Offer historic views beyond 1day, perhaps the past 30 days history and forecast conditions for the next 30 days; as another reviewer said, information is good and keeps the consumer aware of what to expect. +1/2 star if done.
3. Give at least two "push notification" options, with one of those options being a "critical" alert as opposed to warning or informational alerts. If the grid is in danger of (or going into) rolling blackout conditions, that's critical. If you just want to tell folks to "conserve because continued high heat will make conditions tight", like I got 5 minutes after installing the app, that's more warning - and little I can do about it beyond measures already taken with automated thermostats and such. +1/2 star if done.
