NOTICE RE PUBLIC ACCESS AT SWAN LAKE FACILITY
Public access to the Swan Lake Hydroelectric Project is closed until October 31, 2016 due to construction site safety requirements. We appreciate your patience during these construction activities. The project will benefit all three interconnected member utility communities (Petersburg, Wrangell, and Ketchikan) by providing additional energy storage and greater operational flexibility. The 25% increase in reservoir storage will displace up to 12,000 MWhs of winter diesel generation (equating to a reduction of 800,000 gallons of diesel fuel annually and saving 17,904,000 pounds of CO2 greenhouse emissions). SEAPA is leading the region's effort to advance new power generation opportunities to serve future load growth. If you have any questions, please call 907.228.2281.
