      Avista Receives Grant to Pilot a Shared Energy Economy Model

      Recently, Avista was awarded a grant from the Washington Department of Commerce and Governor Jay Inslee’s Clean Energy Fund 2 to demonstrate how a Shared Energy Economy can benefit Washington energy consumers. The grant is the latest example of Avista’s 127-year history of innovation and positions the utility for the energy future. Over the years, Avista has learned a lot about how to integrate intermittent renewable energy into the electrical grid from Avista’s Energy Storage Project in Pullman, which was funded by Avista with assistance from a grant from the Clean Energy Fund 1 in 2014.  Thanks to the grant from the Clean Energy Fund 2, Avista, with its partners, will build upon these learnings and take the next step by piloting a Shared Energy Economy model.
