The first-ever utility-grade geothermal plant of Alaska is in the works, according to the Alaska Journal of Commerce last week (April 24). The plant will be developed by electric service provider and cooperative, Naknek Electric Association (NEA), at an estimated cost of $200 million. A 9,000- to 12,000-foot exploratory well is planned for drilling by the NEA, either this summer or fall near King Salmon, which is north of the Naknek River.
