Pacific Gas & Electric Company

LoadSEER License for Forecasting and Planning

Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) has relied on LoadSEER since 2011 as a core application to support its Integrated Grid Planning team, which is responsible for planning, capitalizing, and optimizing the future of the electric distribution network that serves over 5 million California customers. LoadSEER provides rigorous load forecasting, solar, storage, and EV adoption scenario planning and insights that support capital decisions on where and when to upgrade the system. The California Public Utility Commission recognized PG&E's use of LoadSEER as a best practice for electric grid modeling amid changes in customer demand and an influx of solar and electric vehicles. LoadSEER provides PG&E decision makers with the dynamic, granular forecasting required to understand the reliability and financial impacts of these changes up to 20 years into the future at hourly resolution.
