Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program. The Organized Village of Kake (OVK) of Alaska proposes two activities. 1) The first activity is to prepare a strategy which will promote the reduction of the tribe?s energy consumption. The strategy would include conducting a wind energy feasibility study which would include installing wind measuring tools on OVK Trust land, measuring wind speed for site placement, and requesting bids for the installation of the wind turbines on the OVK office building, as well as utilizing the results of the study to educate the community on energy conservation and cleaner ways to power and heat a home or business in a rural setting. 2) The second activity is to install two 2.5 kilowatt (kW) wind turbines on OVK Trust land to collect data and to connect the turbines to the OVK Office Building.
