  • Community Energy Lecture Series: Eva Creek – History and First Year Observations by GVEA

Eva Creek – History and First Year Observations by GVEA

Tuesday, February 18, 2014, 6:00pm – 7:30pm

The Blue Loon (2999 Parks Highway)

Presenter:
Paul Morgan, Eva Creek Manager, Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA)

Description:
At just under 25-megawatts, Eva Creek is the largest wind project in Alaska and the first by any Railbelt utility. The project has integrated well into GVEA’s system and has enabled the cooperative to meet its Renewable Energy Pledge ahead of schedule.

On February 18th Paul Morgan, from GVEA, will give a quick history of the Eva Creek Wind Farm. He will discuss the first full year’s performance data, speak about observations of experiences at the site, and cover how the farm adjusts its power output as demand fluctuates across the grid.
