Sealaska Natural Resource Planner Nathan Soboleff examines the old oil-fired boilers that heat Sealaska Plaza in downtown Juneau. They’ll be replaced with a wood-pellet burner next year.

Sealaska is converting its Juneau headquarters building from oil to wood-pellet heat. The Southeast regional Native corporation says the change will save money. It also hopes to create demand for a wood-pellet industry on Prince of Wales Island.
