Southeast Alaska …receives 95% of its electricity from hydropower, making it a national leader in renewable energy. However, barriers remain, both for the distribution of renewable energy throughout the region (most hydropower generation is concentrated in Juneau, Ketchikan, and Sitka), and for households, organizations, and businesses that want to switch to clean energy technologies.
Expanding Our Access to Clean Energy: The programs offered in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) — a piece of federal legislation signed in 2022 — expand access to clean energy and energy efficiency measures and can financially benefit households. This page is meant to share the best information available as of August 2023 to help Southeast Alaskans navigate and take advantage of these programs and other regional resources for home energy improvements.
