Haida Energy, Inc. is constructing a hydroelectric project on Reynolds Creek located 10 miles east of Hydaburg, on Prince of Wales Island. The system includes a diversion structure, a 3200 ft. penstock with a drop of 750 vertical feet, a powerhouse, and 12 miles of 34 kV transmission line. The Reynolds Creek project will produce 5 MW of power and will generate 19,300 MWh annually.
The project will be connected to the existing grid to serve the communities of Craig, Klawock, Hollis, Hydaburg, Thorne Bay, Kasaan and Coffman Cove, with a future intertie connection to Naukati Bay.
