Wind Power in Alaska

In the past few years wind power has become more and more prevalent across Alaska, with big turbines sprouting up in all parts of the state. Sponsored by the Renewable Energy Alaska Project, event attendees will hear from Suzanne Gibson of Fire Island Wind, LLC about phase two of their Anchorage project. Also hear from Dennis Meiners of Intelligent Energy Systems about his work installing wind-diesel hybrid systems in rural Alaska.

The forum will be held both in person and via a live webinar.
