Kuskokwim business innovators reap awards at AFN
Once operational these low power turbines in Kwigillingok will be the first step towards energy stability for three coastal villages.
The Caniinuq Wind Group is among the largest award recipients at the Alaska Marketplace competition. The energy cooperative emerging in Kwigillingok, Kongiganak and Kipnuk won $25,000 for their business plan to haul freight over the tundra in winter months. Several other Bethel area upstarts are also in the money. The results were announced Thursday at Alaska Federation of Natives annual convention.
