AEPCO Purchases Batteries to Provide Members Lower Cost Energy at Peak Demand Times

Arizona Electric Power Cooperative (AEPCO) and Southwest Cooperative Services have purchased three batteries capable of providing 140 megawatt-hours of energy storage for three cooperatives’ distribution systems. Each cooperative will be able to develop its own plan for deploying the batteries to meet their needs. The batteries will permit the cooperatives to distribute their power during peak periods to avoid purchasing electricity at higher market rates.
