The Snettisham hydroelectric power plant is a 78,210 kw power plant located 28 miles south of central Juneau, Alaska[1] and accessible only by boat or seaplane. The power plant is fed by two lakes that are tapped from below, negating the need for a traditional dam. It supplies most of the electricity for Alaska Electric Light & Power.[1] It is connected to Juneau by at 44-mile transmission line.[1]

It was completed in 1975.[1]
