Cordova Electric Cooperative
Achieving a resilient and sustainable energy future in Alaska
Resilient, Renewable and Sustainable Energy
Cordova Electric Cooperative (CEC) is the sole provider of electricity to the remote coastal community of Cordova in Alaska. It's mission is to deliver affordable, environmentally responsible energy to its members in a safe and reliable manner.
Accelerate the move to sustainable energy to support state’s largest fishing fleet, and protect the local ecosystem after a major oil spill
Developed a microgrid to harness available hydropower sources year-round, despite seasonal variability, using renewable energy and a battery energy storage system (BESS)
Maximized renewable energy production, significantly reducing dependence on diesel by 40,000 - 50,000 gallons per year
- Hydro (7.25 MW)
- Diesel (2 MW)
- PowerStore Battery (1 MW / 1 MWh)
- Hitachi Energy e-mesh Control System
- Reduce its dependence on diesel and move closer to its goals for sustainability (expect to save between 40,000-50,000 gallons of diesel fuel a year)
- Maximize the use of locally produced hydroelectric power
- Recover the hydropower lost during transition periods
Our BESS is performing so well now that we expect it to save between 40-50k gallons of diesel fuel p/a. We’ve smashed our hydropower production targets.
Let's talk energy solutions for remote communities.
Microgrids play a vital role in addressing the energy needs of remote communities, promoting sustainability, and fostering community resilience while reducing environmental impact and costs. Whether your community is in Alaska or the Pacific, contact us to learn more about how Hitachi’s energy solutions can integrate with local utilities and distributed energy sources to provide reliable, clean energy anytime, anywhere.
