Kake to Petersburg Transmission Project

Project Information
Sector: Electricity Transmission
Project Category: 
FAST-41 Covered Projects
Project Status: 
Complete
Total Estimated Project Cost: 
$200,000,000
Description: 

69kV/138kV  would connect this isolated electric system to the interconnected electric systems of
Petersburg, Wrangell and Ketchikan. Petersburg, Wrangell, and Ketchikan are currently interconnected to and obtain most of their power supplies from the Tyee Lake and Swan Lake hydroelectric projects owned by the Southeast Alaska Power Agency (SEAPA) (formerly the Four Dam Pool Power Agency).
The Kake-Petersburg Intertie would be used to transmit surplus hydroelectric power from SEAPA to the electric system in Kake, thereby offsetting the existing diesel generation while lowering and stabilizing the cost of electricity in Kake.
