Member Spotlight - City of King Cove
Each month REAP highlights one of our Organizational Members and their work promoting clean energy in Alaska. For December, we interviewed Bonnie Folz of the City of King Cove. King Cove has been a pioneer in renewable energy development, building the Delta Creek Hydro Project almost 20 years ago. Since then the community has displaced over 3 million gallons of diesel fuel, saving more than $4.6 million in the process.

Thank You REAP Donors
REAP would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all its donors this holiday season - we really couldn't do all this work without you!
With hundreds of donors like you investing in REAP's clean energy advocacy, we're making more Alaskans take notice and think hard about their personal energy choices, and our collective energy choices as a state. REAP has several exciting initiatives on the horizon, including expanding our renewable energy education department to reach more students and teachers across the state. Your continued support helps to further these initiatives.
