CAISO RIG Replacements in High Gear

In the first four months of 2017, Trimark will replace dozens of aging CAISO RIGs that were built using computer equipment that cannot accept CAISO's new, mandated SHA-2 security certificates. 


As of May 7, 2017, the SHA-1 SSL certificate will expire and must be replaced by the SHA-2 SSL Certificate. 


"May 7 is not the deadline to start replacement," said Dean Schoeder, Trimark's Chief Marketing Officer. "That's when these RIGs will stop working and you will receive a letter of non-compliance." 

RIGs based on older platforms such as Areva, Hathaway, and Qualitrol as well as some Draker devices will be affected.


In order to maintain compliance, resource owners must have a RIG that can accommodate a SHA-2 SSL certificate, such as Trimark’s T1-S Gateway.


If you need a SHA-2 compliant RIG, or just want to upgrade your systems -- We'll be there!

Bulk Energy Storage a Reality in California

Pomona Battery Storage


The electric industry recently passed a major milestone. For years, utility-scale electric power storage has been predicted, discussed and even legislated. On December 31, 2016, bulk energy storage became a reality when Trimark helped two, 20MW storage resources complete the final steps in CAISO's commissioning process. These projects are the first utility-scale bulk energy storage resources of their kind.


Trimark was there – delivering CAISO-certified revenue metering and RIGs that are required for commissioning, to enable market participation, and enable secure communication with control authorities.

    T1-S SCADA Automates ADS Scheduling and Response

    Trimark’s T1-S SCADA can now accept, schedule and execute CAISO Automated Dispatch System (ADS) commands. This functionality lets utility-scale PV resources participate in the real-time energy market by responding to authorized dispatches within 5-minutes.T1-S SCADA ADS


    “Integrating ADS handling into the plant SCADA system improves efficiency and eliminates the requirement for separate integration processes,” said Bob Wood, Trimark’s Chief Technology/Operations Officer.
