Wind power now provides residents of an isolated Alaska village with renewable energy to run a water treatment facility.

Southwest Windpower, in conjunction with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) and Anchorage-based Susitna Energy Systems installed three Skystream 3.7 wind turbines, which will power ANTHC’s two-year-old art water plant. The wind turbines are projected to supply approximately 75 per cent of the roughly 18,000 kWh consumed annually by the facility. In high wind conditions, excess energy produced by the wind turbines will be distributed amongst the village through a micro-grid.
