PJM has announced the release of a major update to PJM Now, PJM’s iPhone and Android app to track operational data in real time, which makes it easier for users to receive alerts and track pricing trends.
PJM Now includes an interactive locational marginal pricing map where users can see LMP prices by zone, demand curve graphs to view demand by the hour and a way to see how power flows in and out of the region PJM serves. With its latest update:
- Users can now access PJM alerts from the navigation bar, which also shows a count of unread alerts.
- Users can now view the demand curve by transmission zone as well as view a new graph of locational marginal pricing for the Western Hub. Users can also pinch and zoom into the demand curve and LMP trend graphs.
- Users can further customize how they receive alerts by setting upper and lower price limits per transmission zone for LMP alerts. Users can also now access LMP trends directly from the alerts.
