Promoting Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Bristol Bay

The BBNA Economic Development Program oversees some of the Regional Energy projects. It is charged with promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy through disseminating information, planning, partnering, advocating and administering programs and projects. These efforts support the Bristol Bay Regional Vision by fostering coordination and promoting regional planning.

The Southwest Alaska Energy Network webpage is complete! Through grant funds from the US Department of Energy, Office of Indian Energy of which BBNA is a partner, this website has valuable energy information. Click on the link below and check out the work that has taken place.


The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) announced it is seeking applications for Renewable Energy Fund (REF) grants to help Alaskans reduce the cost of energy through the development of renewable energy projects.
