Battle Creak Diversion
The Battle Creek Diversion is a project of the Alaska Energy Authority.
Diverting the Battle Creek watershed into Bradley Lake will add upwards of 35,000 MWh per year of energy to the Railbelt system. Energy from Bradley Lake is the least expensive, largest power supply on the Railbelt grid. This project would increase the availability of inexpensive power to Alaskans throughout the system. In addition, hydropower can help balance the fluctuations of variable power from potential renewable sources like wind and solar. The six utilities are the beneficiaries of the project and will pay for half of the project costs.
