The City and Borough of Juneau Docks & Harbors Department is seeking public comment on its Draft Juneau Cruise Ship Dock Electrification Study. The study develops conceptual plans, options, and cost estimates to add electrical service – also known as shore tie power – to the two CBJ-owned cruise ship dock facilities.

The Draft Juneau Cruise Ship Dock Electrification Study evaluates and estimates power availability and what impact additional cruise ship berth electrical connections would have to Juneau rate payers; and also evaluates opportunities to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of cruise ships moored in Juneau Harbor.
