Avista recently announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Alaska Energy and Resources Company (AERC), which includes its primary subsidiary Alaska Electric Light and Power Company (AEL&P), which is the sole electric services provider for Juneau, the state capital of Alaska.
Built in 1983, the Kettle Falls plant was the first utility-owned electric generating station of its kind in the U.S. constructed for the sole purpose of producing electricity from wood waste, or biomass. The award-winning plant, combined with Avista’s legacy hydroelectric power projects, has contributed to Avista being listed among the greenest utilities in the country. The facility produces up to 61 megawatts of electricity – enough to power 46,000 homes.
