Field Trip Information
Join us for a field trip to a local energy project! Field Trips will take place on April 29th, 2013. Please make sure to register early as space is limited.
Anchorage Regional Landfill (Methane Gas To Electricity)
The Anchorage Regional Landfill is the home to the state's first methane power plant. Doyon Utilities built and manages the $26 million power plant which provides power to Joint-Base Elemendorf Richardson thanks to 4 GE Janbacher engines which convert methane gas created by decomposing garbage at the landfill into electricity. The plant is equipped to burn both methane and natural gas and produces 5.6 megawatts of power - 80 percent of JBER's summer usage and 55 percent of their winter power needs. This tour will introduce visitors to the project from both the landfill methane capture and transport side and the power plant. Note: This tour is limited to the first 20 registrants.
H2Oasis Water Park (Capstone Micro-Turbines)
H2Oasis is the only commercially operated waterpark in the State of Alaska which remains open all year. The ability to maintain heat and electricity at an arctic waterpark is being managed by several non-conventional technologies. Primarily the park uses a Capstone Micro-Turbine that generates both power and heat to produce over 50% of their energy usage and maintain 350,000 gallons of water at a sustained 84°F. The park is hooked to the Anchorage’s electical grid and is currently utilizing the Anchorage’s natural gas resource to operate, however the same technology could be utilized with diesel or other hybrid systems. This tour will allow you a behind the scenes glimpse of the Capstone Micro-Turbine’s as well as the 60 solar collector panels being used.
Alaska Energy Authority (Power Plant Modules)
Please join us for a tour of the latest Power Plant Modules in construction for the rural communities of Egegik and St. George. The St. George module is projected to be undergoing final configuration and testing of the generators, switchgear and auxiliary systems.
