GVEA Board Meeting
December 10, 2018 • 4:00pm
Board Room of GVEA’s headquarters location: 758 Illinois St., Fairbanks
On December 10, we encourage GVEA members to attend the board meeting and help us bring some community requests to our local electric supplier. Our requests are:
Encourage follow-through on the carbon emissions reduction goal
Increasing GVEA’s renewable energy portfolio and implement a strong renewable energy transition plan. We can do more, we want more.
Urge the Board of Directors to adopt a new renewable energy goal and incorporate more solar, wind, hydro and geothermal energy into the grid.
Urge the Board of Directors to cease spending money on new fossil fuel projects and instead financially support renewable energy.
Urge for the unification of the Railbelt transmission system under a transmission company with oversight of an independent system operator
Decommission Healy 1 Coal-fired plant. There are too many consequences to extending Healy 1’s operating life:
Extending Healy1 would lock GVEA and it's members into decades of high emissions.
Extending Healy1 would severely limit the ability of GVEA to add new renewables to the grid.
