I saw people with hope.
I saw people with challenges. I saw people that know that their senator will
stand up for them everyday in Washington, D.C. and do her best to try to deliver
some solutions to energy challenges that most people in America have no idea exist. We’re here on Kodiak Island. We’ve been visiting the city of Kodiak looking at their extraordinary hydro and wind potential,
making themselves a community that’s about 99 percent renewable. But finding the right mix and I think this is a great example of a portfolio that’s very
diverse. Every part of this country has its unique challenges, obviously Alaska is one of
them when it comes to being connected to the electric grid. It’s the reason I think it’s important for this country to have a very diverse
portfolio when it comes to our energy resources number one we’re going to need
it all to bring the economy into a place like Old Harbor requires access to power. Affordable power. Affordable and accessible. So that’s the real story. If we are able to solve their
problems, their issues, their concerns, we can help facilitate an economy in in
this region and again as you say Secretary “give them hope,” that’s what they’re asking. Thanks for bringing that to the attention of
the American people Senator. Well thank you for making the trip out here It’s not your first trip to Alaska but … Nor will it be my last. There you go.
