Success Story in Tribal Energy: Alaska Wind Energy Project

April 8, 2024

The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Indian Energy highlighted how wind energy is supporting remote villages in Alaska and its wins, such as:

  • Emissions avoided: 104,700 gallons of diesel fuel each year = 930 metric tons of greenhouse gas annually (equivalent to removing 207 gasoline-powered cars from the road each year).
  • Cost savings: $11.4 million over the 25-year life of the system for the utility and powered communities.
