The information includes:

  • Unit availability.
  • Unit generation schedules.
  • Unit outages, including scheduled, voluntary, forced or PG&E-caused outages.

Outage data collected on the Power Procurement Information Center is forwarded to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) through CAISO's scheduling and logging for the ISO of California (SLIC) reporting application.

SLIC uses the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Standard Generator Availability Data System (GADS) cause codes to identify reasons for generator curtailments and/or outages. Get the NERC GADS codes and enter the correct code in the SLIC outage comments field with data related to the outage. Download NERC GADS codes (XLS, 18 KB).
