Item 1.01  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement>.
 
On February 20, 2009, Beacon Power Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a contract (the “Contract”), effective as of February 18, 2009, with American Electric Power (AEP), as agent for its subsidiary, Columbus Southern Power Company, which will entail building a 1-megawatt Smart Energy Matrix regulation facility at an AEP site in Groveport, Ohio. The system, which will be connected to the grid within the operating region of the PJM Interconnection (PJM), will provide flywheel-based frequency regulation services.
 
When the 1-megawatt flywheel system is installed and connected, the Company will begin providing regulation services directly to PJM and earning commercial revenue from such services. AEP will provide the site and certain integration services in support of the project, and in exchange gain in-depth knowledge about the performance of the Company’s system and its impact on frequency regulation and grid stability.
 
The Contract calls for the Company to deliver, install, test and operate, at its expense, a 1-megawatt Smart Energy Matrix. AEP will provide and/or install materials and services needed to interconnect the Company’s system to PJM, including the foundation, electrical transformer, associated wiring and connection to power lines. AEP has already completed the necessary system impact study and executed an interconnection agreement. Installation of the Smart Energy Matrix is scheduled to begin in mid-year 2009.

A copy of the Contract is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
