Sitka’s municipal utility, which derives its power principally from a hydroelectric plant, serves 9,000 residents in a 4,000 square mile territory. All was fine until ballooning fuel oil prices led many of Sitka’s residents to switch from heating with oil to electric heat, and the hydroelectric plant proved incapable of meeting the increased demand for electricity. It was clear the facility had to be upgraded, but in the meantime, additional power was needed. The utility planners turned to Solar Turbines and the Titan™ 130 Modular Power Plant (MPP) to solve their challenge.
