SWAMC’s energy audit program is available to any Alaska small business outside the Municipality of Anchorage* who wants to invest in their business to lower their energy bills. The energy auditor can target the audit to specific building upgrades if desired by the owner. Many upgrades are eligible for a USDA REAP grant to cover 25% of the retrofit cost, including heating and ventilation systems, heat pumps, refrigeration systems, lighting, and more.
Registering for an energy audit does not commit you to doing the energy audit or upgrade. It allows you to discuss your building with the energy auditor to determine the best way forward for you and your business.
*NOTE: Businesses located in the Municipality of Anchorage are not eligible because they are not considered rural by the USDA definition.
