Federal money could help build Healy wind farm

From The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Sunday, May 9, 2010:

Electric utility managers say it’s a federal clean energy program that has them poised to build a big wind farm near Healy.

The program would repay more than two-thirds of construction costs for a $93 million Eva Creek farm, Golden Valley Electric Association president Brian Newton said Friday.

The utility has weighed the proposed farm for years and recently tested markets for renewable energy aid. Newton said they learned last month the project falls under the federal Clean Renewable Energy Bonds program and would be reimbursed from the federal treasury. They are talking of building the 24 megawatt wind farm immediately.
