Trey Acteson, CEO - Affordable energy is the cornerstone of economic development and is essential to building sustainable communities. The SEAPA interconnected region has enjoyed very stable and low-cost electrical rates for decades due to early investment in our local hydropower resources. As we look to the future, new renewable resources must be responsibly developed to meet growing demand. SEAPA is fully committed to identifying and advancing cost effective solutions for serving the long-term energy needs of our member utilities and the ratepayers.

STABLE LOW-COST WHOLESALE POWER

with an intensive power infrastructure.

SEAPA is uniquely structured to shelter our three member utilities from the significant risks associated with owning, operating, maintaining, developing, and financing capital intensive power infrastructure. Ketchikan, Petersburg, and Wrangell greatly benefit from the stable low-cost wholesale power that SEAPA delivers to their front door for subsequent distribution to the end user.

SEAPA's mission is to safely provide clean, reliable, low-cost wholesale power to the communities we serve.
