Preliminary hdropower project permit granted to city of Angoon

Posted: Friday, November 06, 2009

JUNEAU - The city of Angoon has been granted a preliminary permit for the Ruth Lake hydropower project.

The 20 megawatt hydropower project is designed to produce low cost electricity for Angoon, and to eventually provide hydropower to other Southeast communities.

Angoon Mayor Albert Howard says he's looking for region-wide collaboration on the project.

The mayor says Angoon, as well as most communities off the road system, are getting hit hard by the rising cost of diesel fuel which powers the generators that currently provide electricity.
