Talk of Alaska: Renewable Energy for Alaska

While rising oil prices are putting the squeeze on the rest of the country, they also gave Alaska a hefty budget surplus. But that’s not much comfort for the state’s villages, where fuel costs have hit so hard that some people just can’t make it economically any more. This week on Talk of Alaska we sat down with Steve Haagenson, Alaska’s new state energy director. He’s about to launch a series of meetings around the state and started by chatting with us and callers statewide.
