In the small villages of Alaska, conventional electricity can be hard to come by. Coffman coordinated design efforts with geotechnical engineers and the local utility company to design wind turbine towers that can stand up to the harsh local weather. The towers now supply these villages with renewable, sustainable wind power.
The Alaska Village Electrical Cooperative (AVEC) is a non-profit cooperative electric utility that serves 54 rural villages in western and interior Alaska. It is the largest retail electric cooperative of its kind in the world. The villages served through this project included Kasigluk, Savoonga, Gambell, Hooper Bay, and Chevak.
