Time to get serious about alternate energy
October 24, 2010
By Tim Bradner in the Anchorage Daily News: It’s time to get serious about alternative energy for the Railbelt, the Southcentral-Interior corridor of the state’s largest communities. The regional power grid is mostly dependent on natural gas, and the gas wells are running out. If we don’t do something we’ll have to import liquefied natural gas, or LNG, within the next three years or so, possibly at more than twice what we pay now for gas. Not a pleasant thought.
