Bob will discuss the Bradley Lake hydroelectric power generation station and the Battle Creek Diversion and their contribution to Railbelt energy strategies. He will also discuss the SQ Line which was damaged this summer during the wildfires.

The Bradley Creek Diversion Project will divert runoff into Bradley Lake. The project will enable the facility, which currently produces some of the lowest cost power between Homer and Fairbanks, to increase its annual output by about 10% (enough to serve almost 5,500 homes) for the next 80 years. The project is currently underway and is planned to be commissioned by summer of 2020.
