CapSciComm Science Tour, May 5th: The California ISO (Register by April 2nd)


How does electricity flow across California? Who manages how power is transmitted to communities and industries across the vast expanses of the Golden State?

You’ll learn these answers and more at our next Capital Science Communicators Science Tour —  a very special visit to the California Independent System Operator campus in Folsom!

CapSciComm Science Tour: California ISO
Friday, May 5th, 2017
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
250 Outcropping Way, Folsom, CA 95630


This tour is specifically designed for our professional and student members, so we encourage fellow writers, journalists, PIOs, policy staff, educators, and researchers to attend.

We’ll be joined by seasoned and experienced public information officers at California ISO, who will help us understand the critical role this organization plays in managing electricity transmission for much of California and portions of Nevada. We’ll get a primer on how power flows through our state’s power grid — and the intricacies in communicating this complex process to the general public and other audiences.

Please register by our April 2nd cutoff to attend this Science Tour. Due to the sensitive nature of our tour facility, we are announcing this event early and requiring registration. CapSciComm will be submitting names of all tour registrants for the security clearance process required by California ISO, and the lead time is necessary to help ensure timely clearance for everyone on our tour group.

Our thanks again to the communications team at California ISO for welcoming us for this tour — we look forward to a fascinating and educational visit!

— The CapSciComm Board
