Construction Status of Bradley Lake

Question: What is the current status of State plans to construct the Bradley Lake project?

Answer: The State has completed all the necessary work to support the application for a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission license for the Bradley Lake Project, and plans to submit the license application this year. The State Administration and Legislature are working on financing plans. Construction may start in 1985 or 1986.

Conservation and Renewable Energy Programs

Question: Several of the other PMA's have on-going programs in the conservation and renewable energy area. What is APA doing to assess the contribution these alternatives may provide in meeting your future energy demands?

Answer: Over the last several years, APA completed a number of important studies in conservation and renewable energy areas through its General Investigations program. That work included a series of transmission studies to examine improved use of hydro resources, investigation of small hydro potential in remote areas, some wind resource appraisals, heat pump investigations, and evaluation of opportunities to substitute hydro energy for oil. They have also assisted in administration of DOE and State grant programs in appropriate technology, biomass conversion, and micro hydro applications. With phase out of APA's general investigations program, future work in conservation and renewable energy will be limited to efforts to obtain best efficiency in production and use of power from the two operating projects.

Future Power Requirements

Question: Could you provide for the record a forecast of APA's future power requirements and how you plan to meet the demand?

Answer: It is important to remember that Alaska Power Administration provides only about eight percent of Statewide power requirements, with the balance being supplied by utility systems. Over the next several years, the State program will begin to supply a significant portion of the requirements.

The current requirements are around four billion kilowatthours per year and are expected to double over the next 10 to 20 years. The Crater Lake unit of APA's Snettisham Project will cover growing requirements in the Juneau area through the early 1990's, but the balance of future requirements will have to be met by State and utility programs. Studies indicate that the Bradley Lake and Susitna Projects plus interconnections in Southwest Alaska may be the most important measures to meet the expected requirements.

SUBCOMMITTEE RECESS Chairman HATFIELD. The subcommittee will recess subject to call of the Chair.

(Whereupon, at 3:25 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, the subcommittee was recessed to reconvene at 10 a.m. Monday, April 2.)
