    used by the Railbelt s households and businesses The Railbelt makes up 75 percent of the state s overall population Together with smaller hydropower wind solar geothermal and other renewable energy sources Susitna Watana Hydro will enable Alaska to achieve its 50 percent renewable electrical energy goal Wasn t the Susitna Watana Hydro Project studied in the 1980s Why is Alaska pursuing a project that was previously studied yet never constructed The hydropower potential of the Susitna River has been studied since the early 1950s In 1980 the Alaska Power Authority now Alaska Energy Authority began comprehensive study of the feasibility of a Susitna River hydropower project In 1983 the Alaska Power Authority filed for a license with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission FERC and amended the application in 1985 for a two dam project Three phases of construction would have stretched over 20 years Because of the size the 1980s project would have produced much more power than needed The state eventually decided to pull its license application primarily because of the low cost and ample supply of oil and gas The energy picture has changed dramatically from the 1980s Alaska s energy infrastructure Continue Reading What is the cost of the project The current cost estimate for building Susitna Watana Hydro is 5 66 billion The Alaska Energy Authority AEA is taking extraordinary steps to develop the most reliable budget possible and to validate cost assumptions First MWH Global the world s largest hydropower engineering firm in the world has been hired to analyze the project and estimate its overall cost Second AEA is in the process of hiring another independent experienced firm to validate this work Third AEA is organizing a board of consultants to ensure the project is designed and built responsibly and on budget Can the state afford to pay for the estimated 5 66 billion cost of Susitna Watana Hydro AEA does not expect the State of Alaska to directly pay the estimated 5 66 billion needed to build the project Instead AEA expects the project will be publically financed using a combination of bonds loans state investments and other financing solutions Repayment of project debt and return on the State s investment will come from the sale of electricity primarily to Railbelt utilities Alaskans may be familiar with the AEA owned Bradley Lake Hydroelectric Project just east of Homer In the successful financing model Bradley Lake project construction was funded by a combination of bonds and state investment through appropriations Railbelt utilities purchase the power generated by the project through a Power Sales Agreement Under that Agreement the Railbelt utilities continue to make Continue Reading How will Susitna Watana Hydro affect my electricity rates The Alaska Energy Authority anticipates most power generated by Susitna Watana Hydro will be sold to Railbelt utilities Current projections indicate Susitna Watana power will be competitive with other energy sources at startup Significant value and benefits will arise because the long term cost of power remains relatively stable
