Overview

Fire Island Wind LLC, a subsidiary of Cook Inlet Region, Inc. (CIRI), owns and operates the wind turbine project on Fire Island. CIRI is the region’s first major independent power producer. Learn about the unique challenges associated with building a major wind farm so close, and yet so far, from the railbelt grid as it enters Phase II of the project. Three miles from Anchorage in Cook Inlet, the once desolate Fire Island is home to a wind farm which currently provides enough energy to power 6,500 Alaskan homes.
