Renewable Power tops 50% in California for first time.

A Record-Breaking Day for Renewables

Hourly Breakdown of Renewable Energy Generation 3

CAISO set a record on March 23 when 56% of its demand for electricity was served by renewable resources.

The challenge in 2017 is an overabundance of hydroelectric generation. That means renewable generation may need to be curtailed to avoid over generation.

Whether you want to move curtailed power to storage or maximize generation, Trimark provides advanced PV plant control system to make critical store or sell decisions as well as provide ancillary services.

Helicopter to Hell? We'll Be There!

Trimark's meter experts went to hell and back to support one generation resource's need for current, settlement quality meter data.

Hellhole 022


After an unprecedented spate of winter storms that causes wide spread damage, California’s infrastructure is still being restored. At Hell Hole Reservoir, deep in the Tahoe National Forest, communications to the revenue meter at the hydroelectric plant remain out. So is the road.

So, to reach the facility, Placer County Water Authority gave Trimark metermen Ken Williams and Don Clifton a lift turning what would normally require 2-hours of driving into a 15 minute flight across deep canyons and sharp ridges that form the Sierra Nevada Mountains. On site, they retrieved metering files and surveyed conditions for a future meter replacement.

They also confirmed that snowballs actually DO have a chance in Hell Hole, California.
