RE: Plug Into Shore Power
By Dave Kiffer

Carrie James raises an interesting point about cutting back on
air pollution and raising local revenues by having the big ships
plug into the local power grid.
When this came up last year, the response was that Ketchikan
currently doesn't have enough surplus electrical power to handle
the additional load. KPU made the comparison that the average
big ship uses as much electricity as Wrangell.
Just another reason why we need to finish the unfinished Swan
Lake - Lake Tyee electrical intertie!
