Talk of AK-BC Intertie Highlights Wrangell Energy Summit

WRANGELL Leaders from Southeast Alaska and Northwest British Columbia convened at the Nolan Center last Saturday for the first-ever Wrangell Energy Summit.

The main purpose of the meeting was to support the creation of a powerline connecting Southeast Alaska and British Columbia. But as KSTK's Tony Gorman reports, the Intertie and hydropower weren't the only items on the agenda.
