Energy Authority Opening Audit Program Application Period

Ellen Lockyer, KSKA – Anchorage

The Alaska Energy Authority is opening an application period for its Alaska Commercial Energy Audit Program.    Owners of eligible commercial buildings statewide could be reimbursed up to $6,500 for a qualifying energy audit. Karsten Rodvik is AEA’s spokesman

Rodvik says an eligible applicant would be an owner of a building, either an individual, a corporation or a partnership.

Commercial residential buildings, such as apartment buildings, are not eligible.  The funding for the program comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which is providing $390,000 to get the pilot program started.

Rodvik says owners of buildings located in rural areas are also encouraged to apply.

There is a Feb. 15 deadline, although early decision applications are available for those who apply by Jan. 27.
