Renewable Energy Fund Seeks Project Applications
The Alaska Energy Authority is seeking applications for Renewable Energy Fund grants to help Alaska communities reduce the cost of energy through the development of renewable energy projects.
AEA will submit a report summarizing each application and a recommended priority to the Alaska State Legislature for fiscal year 2022 funding.
The REF was established by the Alaska State Legislature to provide grant funding for the development of qualifying and competitively selected renewable energy projects. Since inception, 287 REF grants have been awarded to projects totaling $268 million. Over 90 operating projects have been built with REF contributions, collectively saving more than 30 million gallons of diesel each year.
Find more information at the REF website.
