The Haines Borough will host a meeting about the potential for wind power in the Chilkat Valley at 10 a.m. Aug. 2 in the assembly chambers.
Reuben Loewen, an engineer who previously worked for the State of Alaska on wind power issues, and Michelle LaBrosse, a resident and businesswoman who studied wind-power potential at a Mud Bay site, are invited.
Scott said she’d like to get wind scientists together with advocates of wind power. Ideally, a defensible, scientific analysis of the valley’s potential for wind energy could be conducted, she said.
“This is an informal meeting. It’s not a committee. It’s just people who are interested. If nobody comes, that will tell me something,” Scott said.
