Corporation still planning Fire Island wind farm

Posted: Thursday, November 26, 2009

ANCHORAGE - The Cook Inlet Region corporation says it plans to go ahead with the Fire Island wind farm project, despite a split last month with a developer.

The developer, California-based EnXco, had been an equity partner in the 54-megawatt wind farm. The Anchorage Native corporation told The Anchorage Daily News it could fund the $165 million project by itself and hopes to sign a deal next month with another developer.

The Legislature has committed $25 million for a transmission line to the Anchorage grid. That money won't be spent until Anchorage utilities agree to purchase the wind power.
