Wind power coming to three villages
On the Y-K Delta
This summer wind powered turbines will be installed in Kwigillingok, Kongiganak and Tuntutuliak according to an article on Alaska Dispatch (www.alaskadispatch.com). Each of the villages has installed one of the 15 planned turbines and each village is working on modifying the electric system to utilize them. The turbines are used models from Outside and stand 12 stories tall. The turbines will generate electric power for the three villages. The project is the work of Chaninik Wind Group, an association formed from the three villages. Half of the $10 million project came from Alaska’s Renewable Energy Alaska Project.
