California day-ahead market to miss launch deadline

The California Independent System Operator (Cal Iso) told the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Ferc) in November that it could not meet the regulator’s requirements by the January deadline and that attempting to do so would leave it open to liability concerns should the market fail.
