    spending Commissioned by the Alaska Energy Authority as part of Susitna Watana Hydro s FERC licensing effort Northern Economics conducted an economic impact analysis and a benefit cost analysis of the project finding that the expected benefits outweigh the costs over the project s life The study estimates energy savings of 11 2 billion during the first 50 years of the project When additional benefits of the dam were factored including the retirement of older generation facilities reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a reduction in the frequency of power outages the energy cost savings surpassed 14 billion While energy savings is the primary benefit of the project the study also estimates Susitna Watana Hydro will provide thousands of direct and indirect jobs for many decades The project would support up to 5 000 jobs preconstruction with a construction workforce of about 12 000 people between 2010 and 2028 peaking annually in 2025 with a construction workforce of 1 155 In addition it would generate millions of dollars in local spending a projected 2 6 billion during construction and an estimated 26 5 million annually during operations Northern Economics is a consulting firm specializing in economic analysis of various industries
