Alaska proposes $14M for wind farms at villages
The state of Alaska is proposing to spend $14 million to build wind farms at six Alaska Native villages.

The villages are located in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. Officials say they will benefit from high winds from the Bering Sea.

Overall, the state plans to spend $100 million in renewable energy projects in hopes of countering high energy prices in Native villages and rural areas.
