URL More about Stapleton Neighborhood Energy Storage (Xcel Energy)
Xcel Energy filed proposals on two solar-storage projects with regulators in Colorado. One of those is in the Stapleton residential neighborhood. The energy storage location will be on Xcel’s “feeder” power line that provides power to the North Central Park and Eastbridge neighborhoods in Stapleton. This feeder line supports more than 330 rooftop solar installations which can supply up to 18.5 percent of the power line’s capacity, one of the highest levels of solar penetration on Xcel’s grid in the state. Up to six battery storage systems of multiple sizes will be deployed at strategic locations along the distribution feeder line. Support from both the Electric Power Research Institute, an industry group, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, CO will be provided for analysis.
This data has been validated by project staff through a review of publicly available information about the project, and verified by the project owner. Information is accurate as of 2016-04-29.
