Coffman Cove nets $175K USDA energy grant

The City of Coffman Cove on Prince of Wales Island will receive $175,000 for an energy project through a U.S. Department of Agriculture High Energy Cost Program grant.

Coffman Cove will use its grant to connect a part of the community that now generates its own electricity.

Also through the federal grant program, the Alaska Village Electric Cooperative received about $2.5 million for an eight-mile electric intertie between New Stuyahok and Ekwok. Another $2.5 million will go to the Denali Commission for an intertie between the communities of Stebbins and Saint Michael.

According to the USDA, only communities with energy costs more than 275 percent of the national average are eligible to receive funds through the program.
