A woody-biomass based energy project has been operational since 2016 in Galena , that provides heat to Galena Interior Learning Academy (GILA) campus buildings. The project was implemented with state-level financial support and collaboration among community stakeholders. The biomass is harvested and processed into wood chips by SEGA, which is a non-profit organization jointly created by the City of Galena, Louden Tribal Council, and Galena City School Board. SEGA has access to forest land from the Native Corporation Gana-'A Yoo Ltd via a Timber Sale Agreement. This biomass boiler was installed alongwith upgrades to the heat distribution system, which has resulted in significant reduction in diesel reliance for the community.
Galena will receive $2 million grant for a community-scale Solar PV project under Alaska's Renewable Energy Fund
