How will Susitna-Watana Hydro affect my electricity rates?

The Alaska Energy Authority anticipates most power generated by Susitna-Watana Hydro will be sold to Railbelt utilities.

Current projections indicate Susitna-Watana power will be competitive with other energy sources at startup.  Significant value and benefits will arise because the long-term cost of power remains relatively stable for 100 years.  The rate you pay at your home or business varies by each Railbelt utility. Retail rates are unique and based on factors that include the power generation mix and cost of power from these energy sources, and the utility’s distribution costs.
