Alaska invests big in renewable energy technologies 

From the July 2009 edition of the Associated General Contractors of Alaska’s Contractor magazine: The state of Alaska has completed its first two rounds of renewable energy project evaluation and funding approvals, authorizing reimbursement of $125 million for more than 100 projects throughout the state. Passed by state legislators in 2008, the Renewable Energy Grant Program calls for a total of $250 million in state spending on energy projects over five years. The first $100 million for 77 project reimbursements was approved by the state Legislative Budget and Audit Committee in late February, the first round of the new energy program.
