OPALCO Awarded Grant for $1 Million for Grid Modernization - Orcas Issues: News & Views

The grant will help fund integration of a .5 MW (or 2 mWh) vanadium flow battery into OPALCO's grid, to condition and time-shift community solar array output, improve load shape, absorb sudden spikes in energy demand, and backup critical substation and fiber optic systems. This will help the co-op save money and improve grid reliability.
