Corporation still planning Fire Island wind farm

From The Associated Press, Wednesday, November 25, 2009:

The Cook Inlet Region corporation says it plans to go ahead with the Fire Island wind farm project, despite a split last month with a developer.

The Anchorage Native corporation told The Anchorage Daily News it could fund the $165 million project by itself and hopes to sign a deal next month with another developer. The Legislature has committed $25 million for a transmission line to the Anchorage grid.

The wind farm could be generating electricity by the end of 2011.
