Alaska’s Renewable Resources

Alaska is in a unique position to provide renewable energy and move America towards energy independence. The government of Alaska quickly realized how important supporting sustainable energy was, and has a history of providing support for independent, renewable energy producers. In 2010 Governor Sean Parnell signed renewable energy legislation into effect, reducing payments for companies wanting to utilize renewable sources and providing a more secure source of energy for the citizens of Alaska. As Governor Parnell states, “This legislation makes geothermal power projects economically viable and therefore more likely to produce more affordable and reliable electric power for homes and businesses.”
