Community Storage Project in Stapleton Neighborhood



For this project, we’re installing six customer batteries and six larger, grid batteries in Denver’s Stapleton neighborhood to learn how energy storage can help us manage the impact of high concentrations of PV solar energy on distribution system feeders.

We’re particularly interested in learning about how batteries can help:

  • Regulate voltage
  • Reduce peak demand
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Store excess solar power during the day
  • Discharge stored power during peak energy usage times

This pilot project is one of two Innovative Clean Technology projects approved in March 2016 by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission.

Energy Saving Tip

Energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs may cost a bit more up front, but they can save big money over the life of the product. Plus, some energy-efficient equipment may be eligible for rebates to offset the initial cost.


May is National Electric Safety Month

Before beginning an outdoor project, be aware of overhead electric lines and keep yourself, your ladders and tools at least 10 feet away from them.
