Swiss smart metering firm Landis+Gyr is to supply a 10MW energy storage system to Tucson Electric Power (TEP), a utility in Southern Arizona.

Landis+Gyr is supplying E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R), an arm of the European utility, which is handling the construction of the TEP storage facility.

TEP struck long-term arrangements with EC&R and wholesale electricity supplier NextEra Energy last year to supply capacity and availability from two new 10MW energy storage systems, to help balance load and regulate frequency on its distribution system.
