The hydrogen they produce will be used initially to supplant propane that is used for appliances like stoves, dryers and fireplaces starting in August of this year. In addition they will use the hydrogen to fuel the vehicles they use to move guests and supplies over the sixty-mile distance from Fairbanks. This project demonstrates how energy production can be localized in many places based on the resources that are available. The cold environment of Alaska is not well-suited to using batteries, but in other places geothermal or other sources could be used with batteries.
