Company Summary

We are initially developing facilities to recover Eklutna Generation Station waste heat from exhaust stacks and other equipment to generate additional electricity with no additional fuel consumption or emissions. MEA will sell and distribute the power. Future projects will capture and transfer remaining waste heat that is too cool for economic power generation to provide space and process heat for new industrial businesses on adjacent sites.
