PALMER - The Matanuska Electric Association is soliciting bids for a gas-fired power plant at Eklutna.
The Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman reported the bid has two options. A company can either build the plant for the association or it can build a plant and sell power exclusively to the association.
The plant is to produce 180 megawatts of power. The land consists of 70 acres rezoned for power plant usage earlier this year.
The MEA won't award the bid until next spring.
