Affordable Energy for Alaska
  • Hydroelectric power is the least expensive form of power in Alaska by 15% and the least
    expensive form of heat by a factor of 3.5-to-1. (Alaska Energy Authority)
  • 2007 Energy Reports state, "Thomas Bay/Swan Lake-Tyee are believed to be able to
    provide energy for all of Southeast's needs as well as export excess energy."

Economic Development
  • The 2009 economic stimulus package included $6.5 billion for renewable energy and $11
    billion for energy transmission.
  • $150 billion in federal funds for clean energy over 10 years.
  • Administration goals include 10% of U.S. energy from renewable sources within 3 years,
    25% within 15 years.
  • Alaska administrative goals include 50% of state power from non-polluting, renewable
    sources within 15 years.
    The Alaska-Canada
    Intertie is vital to ensure
    the economic feasibility
    of the development of
    over 3000+ Megawatts of
    possible power at 80+
    developable sites in
    Southeast Alaska alone.
Green Energy
  • National energy demand will increase 30%-50% over the next 20 years.*
  • National renewable energy will grow by over 50% over the next 20 years.*
  • Oil prices are projected to reach $189 per barrel by 2030.*
  • International energy demand will increase by 50% in the same period.*

The Alaska-Canada Intertie is an integral part of the future of energy and of
the new Alaskan energy economy.  The Intertie has support at the
international, national, state, and local levels, and is the foundation for
economically feasible energy development in Southeast Alaska.
Objectives:
    1. Affordable energy
    for all of Southeast
    Alaska

    2. Stimulus for
    economic
    development

    3. “Green” energy
    for North America
Our Mission: To provide a credible catalyst to the construction of the AK-BC Energy portion of the Southeast Alaska Intertie grid.
