Geothermal test project near King Salmon

Posted: Sunday, July 11, 2010

KING SALMON - The Naknek Electric Association is drilling a well near King Salmon to test the potential for geothermal energy.

Association General Manager Donna Vukich told KTUU-TV the search for renewable energy from underground heat has been a 10-year, $20 million project. If successful it could serve villages across Bristol Bay. The project requires a second test well to be drilled in September.

Naknek Electric currently relies on diesel to generate electricity.
