Learn about dock electrification at JCOS Sustainability Session on April 18

April 10, 2024 – News

The Juneau Commission on Sustainability (JCOS) will host a Sustainability Session on Thursday, April 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Mendenhall Valley Public Library.

The session is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the proposed project to provide renewable electrical power to Juneau’s two public cruise ship docks—a key step toward CBJ’s goal of reducing GHG emissions in Juneau.

CBJ Tourism Manager Alexandra Pierce and AEL&P Director of Energy Services Lori Sowa will present on renewable energy infrastructure and the goals and scope of this project, then take questions from the audience.

You can join in person at the library or remotely via Zoom at juneau.zoom.us/j/88069534778.

Can’t make it during the event? A recording will be available to watch online afterwards.

CBJ is also conducting a short online survey to gather community feedback on dock electrification. Take a few minutes to fill it out now, or join the session and then share your thoughts afterwards. The survey is open through May 10.

Learn more about the dock electrification project by reading the Cruise Ship Dock Electrification Study, or visit the Docks & Harbors project page.
