Kipnuk Wind Heat System

Planned for Construction - Kipnuk Wind Heat System

Kipnuk, Alaska is now funded to build its own high-penetration wind diesel system similar to the other members of Chaninik Wind Group. Since Kipnuk is a larger village, its system will be larger with six Windmatic 95 kW Wind Turbines, and a higher number of village households receiving Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) stoves. Construction is planned for early 2016.

As with all its projects, IES will collaborate with Kipnuk to provide cost savings, long-term sustainable energy solutions, community development, and additional employment for its community members.
