Bethel Power Plant Upgrades

In the past few years, upgrades and improvements to the 45-year old power plant in Bethel have included converting generation voltage to 4160Y, installing a new switchgear module, adding 10 plant step-up transformers, heat recovery, standby generator room and currently, a new generator tie-in project (Generator #8) as well as the repair of the tieline to Oscarville.  Bethel’s power plant benefits members in both Napakiak and Oscarville.
