Event Description

Join us for a webinar with the Cordova Electric Cooperative to learn about its recently installed energy storage system. Cordova installed its 1MW/1MWh utility-scale lithium-ion system in June 2019 to allow the utility to harness more hydropower and reduce reliance on diesel fuel. In this webinar, Cordova Electric will describe how its evaluation, analysis, and modeling led to the installation of the battery. In addition, Cordova Electric will explain the battery's main functions on its hydropower microgrid and detail the battery's performance during a 2-day operation last November in which the coop was able to avoid spilling hydro generation capacity. Lastly, the panelists will cover battery operation and project financing.
