While hydropower has been a priority in Southeast Alaska, other alternatives are being discussed. Longtime Juneau resident and attorney Joseph Gueldhof is with the Energy Foundation. His job with the San Francisco-based organization is to travel the state to listen how different energy forms of energy work in different communities. It's part of an effort to create a state and federal energy policy. During his trip to Wrangell, Gueldof stopped by KSTK's Tony Gorman to talk more about the Foundation and its mission.
