Historically, Juneau has been a relatively “green” city: about 98% of the power needs in Juneau have been produced from hydroelectricity, an energy source which involves the minimal release of greenhouse gases. Only a very small portion has historically been produced by the burning of fossil fuels like petroleum-based diesel. Juneau’s loads reached average capacity of existing hydro resources in 2007.
