The Bradley Lake Project is located at the southern end of south central Alaska. The 120-megawatt project generates an average of 380,000 MWh of energy per year and transmits it to the state’s main power grid via two parallel 20-mile transmission lines.
The project, which cost approximately $328 million (including reserve fund balances), went into commercial operation in 1991. Homer Electric Association under contract with AEA operates the project. Bradley Lake serves Alaska’s Railbelt from Homer to Fairbanks as well as the Delta Junction area.
