CIRI could build 28 Fire Island wind projects for the cost of the Susitna dam project that Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell announced on Nov. 24, 2010. Those wind farms would produce 4 million megawatt-hours of electricity annually compared to 2.5 million megawatt hours for the Susitna dam project. Also, using the proposed Susitna project financing assumptions, the wind-produced power would cost utilities about 2¢ per kilowatt hour versus 6¢ per kilowatt hour for Susitna-hydro-produced power.
