DEPCOM Power has been selected by Tucson Electric Power (TEP) to design, build, and maintain the utility’s largest battery energy storage system. At 200 MW of capacity, the Roadrunner Reserve system will store 800 MWhAC of energy. DEPCOM will execute the full system design, procurement, installation, and long-term maintenance for the system, which is scheduled to begin operation in the summer of 2025.
“We are extremely pleased that TEP chose to entrust us with this milestone project,” says DEPCOM CEO Johnnie Taul. “TEP’s exacting specifications include two decades of system reliability, and DEPCOM’s ability to combine EPC with a long-term services agreement and dedicated O&M capability provides that peace of mind for our partners.”
The Roadrunner Reserve project will use Solbank LFP batteries from Canadian Solar’s e-STORAGE Group. DEPCOM, part of Koch Engineered Solutions, has completed the project’s design and the project now is moving through procurement and toward construction.
