On December 12, 2018, Arizona Electric Power Cooperative (AEPCO) received approval from the Arizona Corporation Commission for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility for the APS to Bagdad Interconnect Project. This project will provide mutual backup power and system reliability for Arizona Public Service Company (APS) electrical loads in the Town of Bagdad, and for AEPCO’s cooperative member Mohave Electric Cooperative Inc.’s electrical loads west of Bagdad. In addition, the project would provide backup power service for small critical loads at the mine.
