AEA manages public funding for developing conventional hydropower projects, including funding for studies, permitting, final design, and project construction. Overall, the hydroelectric program at AEA is designed to meet several short and long-term goals, including:
- Lowering the cost of energy in Alaska communities;
- Promoting local economic development and;
- Ultimately, helping AK reach the goal of achieving 50% renewable energy for electric power by 2025.
