Parnell signs Alaska energy bills

Posted: Thursday, June 17, 2010

ANCHORAGE — Alaska now has an energy policy.

Gov. Sean Parnell on Wednesday signed the bill, a mission-statement-of-sorts hailed as landmark by the bipartisan House committee that sponsored it.

The bill establishes goals for such things as energy conservation and use of renewable resources to create half the state’s electricity by 2025.

Parnell also signed another bipartisan energy bill that dovetails with the energy policy. Among other things it establishes a revolving loan fund to make public buildings more energy efficient, creates a grant fund to encourage new technologies and allows for nuclear energy projects to be considered on an equal basis with other projects.
