WHAT IS THE HOME ENERGY REBATE?

The AHFC Home Energy Rebate Program, funded by the Alaska State Legislature, provides Alaska homeowners (regardless of income) up to a $10,000 rebate for pre-approved energy efficiency improvements, including materials and contracted labor.

AM I ELIGIBLE?

You may be eligible if:

  • You own a home in Alaska and live in it year round.
  • Your home does not have previous improvements done through the AHFC Home Energy Rebate program, New Home Rebate or Weatherization Program.
  • You have not received an AHFC Home Energy Rebate on a previous home in the last two years.
  • Please note that there are NO income requirements.
  • Condo owners are also eligible but should review the condo fact sheet 

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Sign up online or call 877-257-3228.

We highly recommend reading our step by step document before you get started. You need to be prepared to pay for and complete the entire process within 18 months of your first home energy rating. For all the rules be sure to read our program guidelines.

WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS NOW?

You may be eligible for an AHFC Second Mortgage Program for Energy Conservation, which can help cover the cost of the inspections and repairs.
