PETERSBURG-AK Work on a 50-year plan for power generation and transmission line needs in Southeast Alaska is getting underway. The Alaska Energy Authority awarded a contract for the Integrated Resource Plan to the Kansas City–based engineering and consulting firm Black and Veatch late last month, according to Dave Carlson, C-E-O of The Southeast Alaska Power Agency. SEAPA owns and operates the hydropower and transmission facilities that provide electricity to Petersburg, Wrangell and Ketchikan. The organization will play a role in the regional planning effort. SEAPA recently had a business meeting in Petersburg and Matt Lichtenstein took the opportunity to speak with Carlson about the 50-year planning project
