What Can Kodiak Teach the World about Renewable Energy?

Sept. 18, 2017

Alaska Public Media reports that since 2007, the remote community of Kodiak has transformed its grid so that it now generates almost 100% of its power with renewable energy. Ian Baring-Gould, WINDExchange’s technical director, said that Kodiak is an example for other remote communities in Alaska. In addition, its system can serve as a blueprint for other stand-alone grids—including microgrids at hospitals and military and industrial sites.
