Alaska: It’s not all about oil; Kodiak wind co-op wins DOE award

February 15th, 2010

From Green Right Now Reports

This month the Kodiak Electric Association proved that there’s more to the Alaskan energy landscape than oil wells and pipelines.

The U.S. Department of Energy and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association named the co-op the 2009 Wind Cooperative of the Year.

The award, announced the TechAdvantage Conference in Atlanta last week, recognizes the Alaskan cooperative’s Pillar Mountain Wind Project, which is the first utility-scale wind facility. The operation is expected to be a valuable pilot effort at integrating a large wind generation facility into an isolated grid system.
