MIT Technology Review: “The remote Alaskan village of Igiugig—home to about 50 people—will be the first to demonstrate a new approach to wind power that could boost power output and, its inventors say, just might make it more affordable.”
Top of the World Telegraph: The Village of Igiugig has agreed to allow ORPC to test its prototype RivGenTM Power System on the Kvichak River in 2014. ORPC has evaluated the Kvichak as an excellent hydrokinetic resource as well as an ideal site for testing performance, monitoring environmental effects, and gathering data on the economics of river power production. Igiugig community leaders have facilitated the development of this site by leading federal and state permitting efforts, and coordinating site assessment and baseline environmental data collection efforts.
