Kenai Resilience Meeting about Local Energy
David Thomas lead a discussion about energy production on the Peninsula & state-wide. He took suggestions from the audience & based his discussion on what people wanted to hear. It was a very interesting & thought-provoking discussion, even for people who are new to the field of energy. We learned about local energy policy, state energy policy, home-owner energy generation, & renewables. We discovered the amount of energy that industry requires, the amount of energy your average homeowners requires, & how energy is produced on the Kenai. Interestingly we found out that HEA peaks at 88 megawatts and the railbelt peaks at about 800 megawatts. Thanks to David for an interesting talk (in layman’s terms)!
We had a tasty pot luck dinner & some intriguing conversation about what people on the Peninsula are doing to be more sustainable. Lots of great folks make for an enjoyable evening!
