Chuck Collins, left, owner of Copy Express and president of the Juneau Chamber of Commerce, takes a phone order Tuesday next to a bank of copy machines at one of his three businesses. Collins has taken all the measures he can to reduce power consumption at his businesses, following Juneau's energy crises last spring. A second avalanche on Monday is likely to push up utility rates again. Collins told The Associated Press he has confidence in Alaska Electric Light & Power Co., noting the towers were repaired quickly - in about six weeks - last year. But that doesn't mean there isn't a little angst.
