Trimark’s RIG fulfills CAISO’s requirement to participate in California’s electric markets.

Trimark delivers RIG solutions on ruggedized Trimark Data Gateway or SEL RTAC platforms. Trimark’s turnkey RIG includes a computer, software, design, testing, configuration, installation, and certification. Trimark’s RIG is scalable and supports NERC CIP compliance.

Trimark’s RIG meets CAISO RIG requirements including:

  • Real-time data telemetry between site devices (revenue meters, plant interfaces, meteorological systems, and PV inverters) and CAISO
  • Sends data securely from generation to CAISO using DNP and 2048-bit encryption
  • Automated Generation Control (AGC) enables authorized set point adjustments
  • Data aggregation from multiple resources
  • Supports resource generation control, data historization, alarms and alerts, reporting, and analytics

Trimark builds complete MET stations to your specifications and PPA requirements. We start by using instruments that meet accuracy requirements and our standards for reliability. Then our team designs, procures, assembles, configures, installs, and commissions the complete system.

Typical MET Station Assembly

  • Solar irradiance sensor(s) (e.g. Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI) and Plane of Array (POA)) that meet the ISO 9060 Secondary Standard and IEC 61724 Class A Standard
  • All-in-one MET sensor including wind direction/speed, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity
