Power Company to Hold Informational Meeting (from Jim Wilson)

The Isle au Haut Electric Power Company will hold an informational meeting on Sunday, July 19 at 7:00 pm in the Town Hall. The meeting is intended to be an informal discussion of our investigations into a new source of power for the island. These investigations have focused on two alternatives — a replacement for our current cable and a solar/battery/diesel hybrid system. We have hired SGC Engineering to help us evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of each. A representative of the SGC team will be at the meeting. We feel this is an important decision for the island and would appreciate thoughtful input from the community. A second informational meeting will be held in mid-August and the topic will be a major item of discussion at the company’s annual meeting August 29.
