Jo-Carroll Energy is a not-for-profit distribution cooperative that serves nearly 27,000 accounts in rural northwestern Illinois. Its customers include small businesses and industries, farms, and residences.
Jo-Carroll Energy has a portfolio of substations and operating facilities where oil storage is greater than the EPA’s threshold requiring Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans. The energy cooperative chose SCS Engineers to help them save time and money while remaining in compliance with SPCC regulations at 33 substations and operating facilities.
Outcomes and Benefits
Jo-Carroll Energy is fully SPCC compliant at their 33 substations and operating facilities and implemented new oil containment systems for oil-filled electrical substation equipment at four of their sites.
