Challenge

Alaska is heavily reliant on oil revenues and is in the midst of an economic recession. Alaska pays more for energy than almost any other place. Villages often spend more than 50% of income on utilities. It is estimated that 20% (equivalent of $1 billion USD) could be saved in energy efficiency measures.

Solution

Renewable energy is clean, free, and doesn't contribute to global warming or climate change. REAP advances renewable energy in Alaska through an integrative approach - education, training, advocacy, and collaboration in order to create awareness, reduce energy consumption, and reduce the barriers to clean energy development.

Long-Term Impact

Advancing clean energy makes local communities more resilient. Reducing energy use keeps precious dollars circulating in the economy. Diversifying energy consumption to include more clean energy reduces dependency on natural gas and diesel, reducing carbon emissions, and preserving the environment.
