Akutan Geothermal

Project Description

Akutan island 40 miles east of Unalaska/Dutch Harbor, Akutan is home to a community of approximately 90 people and a Trident Seafoods fish processing plant that seasonally employs up to 800. The geothermal resource is in a neighboring valley, Hot Springs Bay Valley, approximately five miles from the load. The geothermal area, which has numerous high temperature hot springs in the valley leading down from Akutan Volcano, was explored in the 1980s and was rated as a high potential site. The City of Akutan has received several Renewable Energy Fund grants to conduct exploration and further plans for a geothermal plant. Planned capacity (MW): 10 MW
