Our windmill farm is run by Kotzebue Electric Association, which was the first utility in Alaska to harness wind power. Windmills make a lot of sense in Kotzebue which has a lot of wind but little hydroelectric potential, and receives petroleum products only in the summer by barge. Our 17 turbine windmills are the largest array in Alaska, and they will provide almost 10% of Kotzebue's yearly electrical needs.
