Project Description
Project / Program Description

Interior Alaska has some of the highest residential energy costs in the country ($0.22 kWh), and some of the worst air quality in the country.  The Alaska Sun Chasers is a team of academics, advocates, and energy professionals who have come together to pursue increased adoption of solar in Alaska.  Our community solar project aims to install a up to 1MW portfolio of kW scale solar systems on local government buildings and schools to lower energy costs to taxpayers and integrate renewbale energy into student curriculum.  To unlock financing for Alaska solar, economies of scale must be achieved to lower the installed cost of solar to economical levels and create a large, financeable project.
