Takatz hydro key to Sitka's energy future?

SITKA, ALASKA The Takatz Lake hydro project is back on the table for Sitka.
The Sitka assembly met Wednesday evening (5-21-08) to discuss next year’s budget for the electrical department, but it may as well have been the first meeting of a local, sustainable energy task force.
The discussion of the day-to-day costs of operating the electric utility took a back seat to planning for the day when Sitka is almost completely powered by electricity.
