Historically, there have been very few utility-sector energy efficiency programs in Alaska. Most program activity is through the state government. Since 2008, the Alaska State Legislature has appropriated a total of $461.5 million to energy efficiency programs, which are covered on Alaska's Financial Incentives page.
In 2010, House Bill 306 established Alaska's state energy policy, which included an aggressive renewable electricity goal, as well as a goal to reduce per capita electricity use in the state by 15% by 2020. This goal has not yet been translated into specific requirements for utilities to achieve specific savings levels, and therefore is not yet considered an energy efficiency resource standard (EERS).
The most recent budgets for energy efficiency programs and electricity and natural gas savings can be found in the State Spending and Savings Tables on the left.
