  • Wasn’t the Susitna-Watana Hydro Project studied in the 1980s? Why is Alaska pursuing a project that was previously studied, yet never constructed? | Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project
    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 is ageing and existing gas fired generation units will be retired in the coming years Alaska ranks the fifth highest in U S energy costs and remains reliant on volatile priced fossil fuels The 2010 state energy policy set the renewable energy goal of 50 percent renewable power by 2025 and the Alaska Legislature unanimously authorized the Alaska Energy Authority to pursue Susitna Watana Hydro in 2011 Today Susitna Watana Hydro is more appropriately sized to meet the Railbelt s energy needs

  • Can the state afford to pay for the estimated $5.66 billion cost of Susitna-Watana Hydro? | Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project
    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
