EDPR NA Distributed Generation, known as EDPR NA DG, has announced its intentions to establish a solar-storage initiative in Arizona on behalf of Mohave Electric Cooperative (MEC).
The project will feature a 23.27MW(dc) ground-mounted solar panel system, combined with a 15MW/60MWh energy storage system. This collaboration with the not-for-profit distribution cooperative, MEC, will enable the delivery of sustainable energy and assist in managing electricity demand during peak periods.
Chief Executive Officer, Tyler Carlson, of Mohave Electric Cooperative, stated: “We are pleased to be working with EDP Renewables on Mohave Electric Cooperative’s first solar plus storage project.
“This project demonstrates MEC’s proactive planning to increase reliability, meet renewable energy mandates, and support the overall electrical grid.”
On October 25, EDPR NA DG and MEC marked the official opening of the new solar array with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and an on-site tour.
“This solar + storage project is a prime example of how MEC – and cooperatives in general – have the power to provide equitable access to clean energy for its members and communities all while providing the framework for a more resilient grid” said Chief Executive Officer, EDPR NA DG, Gustavo Monteiro.
