Last-Minute Decision Saves Chris

"Even the smallest changes have given us something in return," says Chris.

Christopher Carr and his family in Fairbanks were among the last applicants to participate in The Home Energy Rebate program, which closed its waitlist March 25, 2016. 

Chris went to work on his house, built in 1969, and finished the energy-efficiency upgrades in September, 2018. 

With added insulation under the whole home, two new bathroom fans, windows replaced and the entire kitchen sheet rocked the home went from 2-Star-Plus to 4-Star. 

“Making your home more energy efficient seems like a no-brainer to me. Even the smallest changes have given us something in return,” says Chris.

The energy-efficiency upgrades offered energy-cost savings while increasing livability and overall value of their home.
