Old Harbor

Old Harbor, Kodiak, Alaska

The Old Harbor met tower site is located on a small peninsula of Sitkalidak Island approximately one mile ESE across Sitkalidak Strait from the main part of the village of Old Harbor. This site was selected based on a desire to not interfere with the aircraft traffic pattern at the airport and yet be developable without significant road construction. With seven months of data collected, the test site had a lower wind resource than expected and the met tower was decommissioned and removed. This site on Sitkalidak Island was thought to have the best potential for wind power development in Old Harbor. Alternate sites that could be considered are complicated by the location of the airport on the west side of Sitkali-dak Passage.
