Windmills are beginning to make a difference in Alaska’s energy picture.  Utilities have invested an estimated 87 million dollars in wind power, and some locations have seen their fuel consumption drop dramatically.  We’ll have a review and look at prospects for the future of wind energy in Alaska, on the next “Talk of Alaska,” Tuesday at ten on APRN.
