Four tribal communities within Kongiganak, AK have developed an advanced microgrid tied to residents' thermal stoves that has slashed their heating costs, according to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner and others. Residents report saving up to 50% on their heating bills.
Under the new system, light winds displace diesel fuel used to generate electricity, and moderate to strong winds produce excess energy to heat homes through the connected thermal stoves.
