Distribution System Operator Services – Lindale REA
Effective January 18, 2022, Battle River Power Coop entered into a Distribution System Operator (DSO) agreement with Lindale Rural Electrification Association (REA).
Lindale REA is located West of Edmonton and is comprised of over 500 members/services (see service area map below).
In addition to operating the Lindale REA distribution system, which includes new construction, annual maintenance, and emergency outage services, Battle River Power Coop will also continue to provide the Regulated Rate Option (RRO) to Lindale REA members without retail electricity contracts. Lindale REA will also have access to the Battle River Outages App, available through the Google Play and Apple App stores.
This agreement is an example of the strength of cooperatives partnering with like cooperatives and leveraging cooperative principles.
Lindale REA’s emergency communications will be integrated into the Battle River Power Coop system and the Coop website will incorporate outage information for Lindale REA in addition to our own.
The term of this initial agreement is 5 years and both organizations are looking forward to working together to “Keep the lights on!”
