Alternative Energy Ideas
Feb 27, 2009
Jane, how about starting another thread for energy ideas
I started this one on the mudflats forum, too much to copy and paste here. I’m not suggesting actually making the wind generator yourself, but what is needed is good research, organization and grant proposal writing, maybe someone at the university could take up a project? wouldn’t hurt to ask, the sooner the better.
Share ideas for a permanent solution!
Another part of the fuel/food crisis this winter has been the high cost of fuel and the lack of alternative options available. A few villages have wind farms and feasability studies are being done in others but a major impact from wind power is years away.
If you come across a resource that might help cut energy costs in rural Alaska, please contact them, explain the situation, send them a link to our site and ask them if they can help in any way.
You’ll find a good overview of current use of wind power and plans for further expansion here:
