  • Sunverge Energy Storage Helps Glasgow Electric Plant Board Meet Demand and Increase Load Factor

    The Glasgow Electric Plant Board installed Sunverge energy storage units in 165 existing homes in Glasgow, KY (pop. 14,000). The devices capture power from the electric grid when demand and cost are lower, and release that power to customers when demand and costs are high, reducing the need to supply additional power from traditional generating plants. Glasgow EPB was faced with demand charges from Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) as part of the network. With a new tariff program in January 2016, every resident would then pay their portion of the demand charges each month, factoring in the 5 highest 30-minute interval in the month as demand response (DR) events.
