United Power to Build Colorado’s Largest Battery Storage Facility

United Power, a Touchstone Energy cooperative, has announced plans to build its first commercial-scale energy storage project. At 4 MW, the battery storage system will be the largest in Colorado.

The facility is to be developed in collaboration with Chicago-based SoCore Energy, a solar photovoltaic and energy storage developer that focuses on serving rural electric cooperatives. SoCore and United Power selected Tesla to supply the 4 MW/16 MWh powerpack system, and construction is expected to begin in the first half of 2018.
