Wind Power Making a Difference in Alaska

“The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.” —Bob Dylan, 1962 Bob Dylan’s musical refrain for peace and social justice in the 1960s could well serve as an anthem for alternative energy in Alaska in 2012. Before the end of the year, energy generated by wind turbines will make significant new contributions to electrical grids in communities and villages across the state. The renewable energy generated provides, in part, an answer to issues regarding diesel fuel costs and potential natural gas supply shortages that have plagued power providers in recent years.
