Chugach Electric Snow River Dam Public Information Session-Anchorage

  • The Lakefront Anchorage 4800 Spenard Road Anchorage, AK, 99517 United States (map)

Chugach Electric is holding its first of two public information sessions at the Lakefront Anchorage Hotel on Monday April 17th.  

Chugach needs to hear from the public at this critical stage of their dam project. They are very serious about building 3 dams on the Snow River and compelling public outrage is absolutely necessary to stop this project in its tracks.

-Chugach wants to waste $1,000,000 of their customer's money to study the feasibility of 3 dams on the Snow River. If they spent 30 minutes searching Google, they would find over 70 years of rejected and abandoned dam proposals on the Snow River.  
-Chugach has stated that they anticipate Alaska will have a flat demand for new electricity
-Chugach built a natural gas-fired plant 4 years ago and now claims they don't have a reliable source for natural gas
-Chugach calls this dam project a "concept," yet has received an initial permit issued by FERC
-Chugach has failed to research the over 70 years worth of failed and rejected dam proposals on the Snow River. Chugach also has ignored the overwhelming evidence from decades and decades of studies of the Snow River Corridor and how special it is.
-We have transmission issue on the Railbelt that, if addressed, would save ratepayers 10s of millions of dollars. This, in addition to the 6 utilities not working together efficiently, is costing ratepayers daily
