Stay connected with news from Ounalashka and OCCP!
OCCP, LLC is a Joint Venture between Chena Power LLC and the Ounalashka Corporation (OC) – the corporation that represents Alaska Natives that live on, or have roots on, Unalaska, Alaska, a pristine and remote island in the Aleutians that is home to one of the most prolific fisheries in the world and the busiest port in the United States.
OCCP’s goal is to harness the power of the Makushin Volcano, which rests on lands owned by OC, to create clean, renewable power for a community that is currently powered almost entirely by diesel gasoline. This change would positively impact the residents of the island as well as OC’s tenants in the fishing, processing and logistics industries.
In addition to offsetting the extremely high cost of heating fuel locally, geothermal energy would do away with 3.5M gallons of diesel fuel, 686 tons of NOx, 22 tons of PM10 and 39 tons of CO2 per year. This opens opportunities for expansion in the region – all based on green, sustainable energy.
