ISAACSON, CHENAULT HOSTING ENERGY ROUNDTABLE FRIDAY
Anchorage LIO workshop will bring key players to workshop on future, costsWednesday, Sept. 3, 2014, North Pole, Alaska – Representative Doug Isaacson and House Speaker Mike Chenault will host an Energy Roundtable Workshop this Friday, Sept. 5, at the Anchorage temporary LIO.
Key players such as the electrical utilities, Regulatory Commission of Alaska, independent power producers, and Alaska Energy Authority and AIDEA, will join Isaacson and Speaker Chenault.
The workshop is focused on Designing Alaska’s Future: Removing Energy Gridlock. This effort commenced at the conclusion of the last legislative session with an information workshop hosted by Isaacson.
“I’m often asked, ‘If Alaska is energy rich then why do we pay so much for the energy we consume?’ Alaskans desperately need relief from the extraordinary energy prices many have to pay just to keep the lights on and stay warm,” Isaacson, the Co-Chair of the House Special Committee on Energy, said. “The intent of this workshop is to inform the Legislature, utilities, Regulatory Commission, independent power producers, and the public on what steps we can immediately take to lower our utility costs by structural and regulatory changes. Further, this workshop will help define the next steps as well as long-term solutions we must work towards in order to provide affordable energy to all Alaskans.”
