In early December, the Alaska Energy Authority released the Regional Integrated Resource Plan (RIRP) outlining energy options in the Railbelt Region of Alaska over the next 50 years. From Susitna and Chakachamna hydroelectric projects, to geothermal energy from Mt. Spurr and wind power projects on Fire Island, RIRP analyzes all energy projects currently being considered by the State of Alaska as the Cook Inlet natural gas supply runs low. Jim Strandberg, project manager from Alaska Energy Authority presented the Southcentral’s Energy Plan at a monthly meeting of the Renewable Energy Alaska Project held on December 9th at the Anchorage Museum.
